The Oasis of Calm will provide YMCA Lincolnshire's beneficiaries, all experiencing homelessness and a range of
related challenges, the unique opportunity to physically and emotionally engage with gardening, growing and
animal care, at its new garden-and-allotment, The Oasis (Cherry Willingham). Beneficiaries will take part in
horticultural activities which enable them to develop new skills, work as a team, and get physical exercise; they
will also experience The Oasis as a therapeutic space in which gardening and creative activities are used as
mechanisms for self-expression, self-help, and the selfless support of their peers. The project truly offers a
wonderful, meaningful experience which the beneficiaries may never otherwise have.
