Lindengate is a leading Nature based Health and Wellbeing Charity based in Wendover, Bucks, at the foot of the Chiltern Hills. Since 2014, and with the support of over 200 volunteers, Lindengate has transformed from a disused allotment site with 6ft high nettles, to a unique 6 acre secret garden with a Nature Reserve, Ponds, Heritage Orchard, Kitchen Garden and Sensory Garden with sculptures and heritage-based art hidden across the site.

At Lindengate, we believe the natural environment is a healer and teacher and have collated strong evidence regarding the therapeutic benefits for recovery from stress and illness.

All activities are nature based including site interaction walks (seasonal), nature-based arts and crafts (willow weaving/using natural materials from the site etc), kitchen gardening, plant care/self-care, volunteering, conservation, propagation, plant identification, mapping and more!  Our underlying ethos is to protect and enhance the natural environment resulting in projects spanning around many of our endangered flower and tree species. Upcycling and recycling are also factored into our woodworking projects.  Add to this the community of volunteers and staff who nurture a supportive, inclusive and safe environment and you have a recipe for success.

For details of all our programmes, please take a look below and at our Programmes page for further details.  We would value any support that you may be able to offer – find out how you can support us HERE.

For anyone that is unable to visit, take a look at Lindengate@Home, where you will find many activities that can help you keep active, learn new things, connect with and help others and become more aware of all the good things around you.

If you are unsure what the new guidelines may mean for you, take a look at the Government guidelines and our FAQ’s below, but if you have further questions, please contact us.

Our Rest & Reflect programme is a FREE drop-in, open to all, where you will be asked to complete a Track & Trace form, as well as use hand sanitiser, before entering.  Face masks are not compuslary to wear, as the gardens are all outside and offer plenty of sheltered areas to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Your health and safety are our top priority so, as you’d expect, we’ve introduced a few changes.

Here’s our commitment to you:   

We’re following the Covid-19 government safety advice for all visitors and staff to achieve the highest standards. We assess guidelines daily.
We have new operating procedures, cleaning schedules and one-way systems to help manage social distancing.
Regular Risk Assessments have been carried out across Lindengate.  As well as clear guidelines and signage on changes to the use of communal areas, extra cleaning and hygiene procedures are being carried out.

Keep those hands clean and please adhere to all Lindengate’s COVID guidelines whilst on site.

It’s up to you help keep us safe too: 
Please ensure that, in line with updated  Government guidance, if you feel at all unwell, are showing signs of COVID-19 symptoms, are currently shielding, or self-isolating, that you stay at home.

We do not require visitors to Rest & Reflect to wear face coverings at Lindengate, as all areas are outdoor spaces, in line with Government Guidance.

We are accepting cash and contactless donations and have a number of donating tins onsite.
We welcome contactless donations and details of how you can do this, can be found by clicking on the Donate button.
