Root & Branch

Therapeutic gardening and rural crafts for people in Oxfordshire who experience mental health difficulties

Home We help people who experience mental health difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder.  Located on an organic farm in the beautiful Vale of White Horse, we offer a wide range of interesting activities such as gardening, blacksmithing, woodworking, crafts, artwork, and cookery.  This helps people to regain their self-esteem and hence lead a fuller life including returning to work or full-time education.

Now is the time to buy your plants, vegetables and herbs for planting out.  So join us at our plant sales.  These events have been so popular in the past that we are now having two sales.  The first is on Sunday 17 April and the second on Sunday 15 May, both from 10 am to 3 pm.

The two runners

Emma Welch, a Root & Branch volunteer, will attempt a 100 mile ultra marathon to raise money for our charity.  She will be running with her friend Celina Viner.  We can only be amazed and extremely grateful for their super-human effort on our behalf.  We wish the pair every success in their attempt in August.  Please be generous and support them.
