- Restore Hope: Latimer Park, Latimer Road, Chesham HP5 1TU
Contact : 01494 765555 or email email@example.com
Restore Hope is a Christian Charity which seeks to bring hope to children, young people and families. They have both a community garden and new market garden and welcome volunteers for both. The Community Garden is used to grow both vegetables and flowers and is used for family activities run by the charity. The market garden is a productive garden growing vegetable and fruit crops which go into their FoodLife boxes delivered to local families needing food support due to the pandemic. They also have a flock of chickens providing eggs for the FoodLife boxes. Volunteers welcome with enthusiasm and a heart for the local community - gardening/chicken knowledge even better!
