Wild Nettle Gardens is a project set up in Jan 2018 on a barren piece of land lent by a farmer to the project to test the waters. My vision was clear but I did not know if I had the skill set or the character of a farmer/ market gardener. Seven months in, with no real experience to speak of, you can see the results for yourself in the video of what we have achieved so far.
Having suffered with depression for most of my life, and also battling with addictions, not to mention watching loved ones suffer with mental health issues in the family, this project comes as a result of many years of looking for solutions for myself, as well as a long standing desire to help those in need. I have worked in the field of healing now for over a decade, and also spent some time working in an addiction treatment centre in Kentucky. 
We want to be able to offer the opportunity to people who suffer from mental health issues, learning disorders and general stress and depression, a place to relax and get involved with nature. We have had an enquiry from the National Health Service and have spoken to many organisations that may be interested if we can get the project off the ground. 
The reason for setting up the Patreon account is that our vision is to offer this to those that need it, and in order to be able to do that, we need some infra-structure - poly tunnels, insect netting, irrigation, a reliable van to get the produce to market and more tools for the volunteers when they come and so on. 
Please take a look at the video to see what we have achieved thus far. Thank you and please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!

Leaves
$1 or more per month 1 patron
Feel good factor- knowing you are helping a good cause. Many leaves become the forest floor and feed the next generation of plants. 
Twigs
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
Personal message from Caroline Nettle. Twigs are important as they support the leaves...
Branches
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
A personal mention in the next video of the project.  Branches hold all the twigs and leaves and strengthen the tree. 
Trees
$25 or more per month 0 patrons
We will name a tree after you, and mention you on the Facebook page. Trees are the life force of the planet and help us and each other to thrive. 
Forest
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
You will become a sponsor of a  garden bed- we will send you updates of your bed once a quarter, and send you photos of what is growing (and with permission) who is growing it. Forests are the lungs of the planet, without them all life on earth would cease to exist. 
Goals
$1 of $200 per month
$200 a month would help to fund the insect netting that is needed, as well as the irrigation for the beds. Once this is reached, I will set the next goal. Upon reaching this goal, I will commit to sharing how the book is coming along with those patrons who have enabled me to write and share a couple of passages.
