Hands of Hope:
Our Story


Set up in 2016 by the current Trustees, Hands of Hope are restoring “Hope Farm
Community Garden”, a neglected Edwardian walled kitchen garden and 22-acres,
nestled on the Kent/East Sussex border, in The High Weald Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty. We deliver programmes aimed at tackling rural isolation, loneliness, and food poverty, as well as improving mental, physical, and environmental health for communities throughout Rother, Hastings, and West Kent. Our activities support NHS 5 ways to wellbeing - to connect, to be active, to take notice (be mindful), to learn and to give back and incorporate growing, cooking and nature, delivering social, educational, and therapeutic outcomes. We have a no-dig, productive, organic, market garden with Soil Association Accreditation and in June 2022 were awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. 


To become a beacon and landmark at the heart of the community with focus on tackling food poverty, loneliness and rural isolation as well as improving physical & mental health by connecting people to nature and to each other delivered under the model “GCSE – Growing, Cooking, Social & amp; Skills, Environment."


To Enable People and Communities to Lead Healthier and Happier Lives by Connecting them to Nature and Each Other.
