We are very excited to be relaunching in Dorchester and have a great evening planned for you! As well as a new venue, great food and lots of ladies to socialise and catch up with, we are excited to welcome Claire Meyer along to talk to us about the GAP Project and the fantastic work they are doing.
Dorset Mind, in partnership with Meyers Estate Agents, have created The GAP Project. The project was the idea of founders Mark and Claire Meyers as a result of lived experience in their family. They wanted to create a community project that would inspire people and bring them together to benefit the local area.
The GAP Project offers outdoors support from our facilitator and volunteers to help grow and tend 3 allotment plots.
They can provide bespoke programmes for groups or charities that could benefit from this service. In addition, they offer team-building days and/or projects for companies to work on the allotments.
The sessions run all year and the sort of activities include:
- Sowing seeds and planting fruit and vegetables
- Digging, weeding and pruning
- Planning new spaces
- Upcycling pallets into furniture
- Creating wildlife habitats
