Gardener stories

Everyone's experience of recovery is unique. Gardeners reflect on the role Bridewell has played for them.

Shared experiences

Gardeners are invited to share their experiences of Bridewell, a chance to reflect on the changes they've seen and to look forward. No two stories are the same. Some people choose to capture these reflections with a drawing, a poem, or to keep their story as a personal account.


A small shepherd's hut sits in the vineyard at Bridewell. This is a place where our volunteer Story Collector listens as people share their experiences of recovery


At Bridewell we use the term 'gardeners' rather than service users. Everyone contributes to maintaining and growing the garden
