"We are a social enterprise tackling loneliness through nature based activity. "

Rootless Garden is a social enterprise that works with older people to increase wellbeing and fight loneliness.

The initiative designs activities inspired by nature to encourage physical and mental wellbeing through creative social opportunities.

The team carries out projects in care homes, day-care facilities, and community spaces and invites younger volunteers to participate in an effort to encourage intergenerational connections.

Activities include botanical tea blending, social clubs in community spaces, indoor and outdoor gardening projects.

The project is supported by the hosting of supper clubs and catering, cocktail parties, and selling tea blends invented by the elderly participants.
