“Being at Plot 22 brought a different kind of energy to being together – a kind of excitement I think – and a positive sense of being able to make a difference – perhaps something to do with being around and immersed in things which were growing.”
– the TouchBase Team –
“There’s a magic here with the connection of the plants and people. I always see a shift in my emotions when I come here. I always feel different at the end. That shift is so valuable. I’ve been coming here for three years. The first time I came I was quite paranoid and I would cry. But now I feel the impact it has as it’s shown me you don’t have to be stuck.”
