Women Like Me – A Place to Be + Garden Angels
Project Category: Other
We aim to help make Women feel they have something to give, to show them someone does care and together help create a Women’s movement where we can all learn to laugh and grow together.
We’ve worked hard to create a Voluntary organisation to engage with Women to become part of a movement to help us all feel strong, confident and happy.
We do not profess to be able to ‘make you better’ but by becoming a member of Women Like Me we believe you will begin to feel less isolated and hopefully begin to look forward with a more positive outlook.
We believe there is nothing Women Like Me can’t do together and together we can help ourselves feel a greater sense of calm – peacefulness and strength.
We presently run 3 allotments – Lowestoft – Kessingland + Beccles (Suffolk) all known as ‘A Place To Be’. Women can join us to help cultivate the land but also have the opportunity to just be! We tend to adopt unloved allotments that need a great deal of work before we even think about growing, but that’s half the fun eh! AND we have the first She Shed in Suffolk on our Lowestoft allotment. She Shed ll is due to land in Beccles in the next month or two, then we’ll be looking at having our third in Kessingland once we receive funding YaY
We also run ‘The Garden Angel’ project, where women volunteer their time to clear and tidy others gardens and to date helped dozens of other women and have worked at a care home and 2 schools.
Its all about positive wellbeing to help reduce the chance of mental health decline.
Why not visit our Facebook page and website to see for yourself what we’ve done so far.
Together we can Learn Laugh & Grow
We’re always keen to set up more allotments and Garden Angel teams, so if you’re interested give us a shout 🙂
