Objectives

Green Synergy is a Lincoln based gardening and horticulture charity that supports people to socialise, learn and thrive. Our charitable work focuses on supporting people in the most deprived communities in Lincolnshire to improve their mental and physical wellbeing. Green Synergy enables people to learn skills for life, for work and encourages people to care for themselves, each other and the environment. Our charity delivers community gardening and therapeutic horticulture programmes, activities, community engagement events to bring communities together to create more life chances, quality green spaces and re-connect people to green spaces, growing and nature connectedness. Our programmes also include delivering a range of community engagement programmes, events and activities to bring people together in our community gardens and spaces and to support people living at the heart of the city of Lincoln to improve their wellbeing.

Our community programme enables people who are extremely socially isolated and living in very under-served communities to meet, socialise and receive support, guidance and reduce their isolation.

Our vision is for the people of Lincoln and the surrounding areas to have access to a network of local community gardening and city farming projects, therefore creating even happier, healthier, stronger and more sustainable individuals and communities.
