About Us

The Comfrey Project provides a safe, welcoming place for people who have fled conflict and persecution to improve their physical and mental wellbeing, develop new skills and put down roots in their new community.

Our approach is based on Social and Therapeutic Horticulture – the use of horticulture-based activities including gardening, bee-keeping, cooking, crafts and construction, to improve people’s lives. Find out more about this, and the other ways we provide support, on our What We Do page.
