Petrus Community: Journey Home

Greener Front Gardens

You can’t have a green front garden without having a front door and home. As a homelessness charity, Petrus Community understands the unique and sometimes rocky road that people can take to find a place of their own.

The garden is designed to provoke conversations on therapeutic horticulture and green social prescribing, both of which are available to the people of Rochdale at Petrus’s community allotment, PIER.

Petrus Community: Journey Home focuses on reconnecting with nature and on activities that support health and wellbeing. It considers green corridors, materials we use and the physical ways we can live in a more sustainable and eco-friendly way.

Co-designed by staff, volunteers and service users, the Petrus garden encourages quiet reflection on what ‘home’ means and the journey to closing your own front door at the end of the day.
