Waste not Want not is a horticultural based social enterprise and community interest
company which rescues plants and horticultural materials from landfill.
We use horticulture as a therapeutic tool to assist in helping the homeless, ex addicts,
ex offenders, socially excluded and disadvantaged persons, together with the community
We propagate and pot on shrubs, trees, plants and bedding which can be purchased
from our nursery at our Roebuck Site on the B197 between Stevenage and Knebworth
(just south of The Roebuck Inn).
Our second site is at The Learning Garden in the north car park at
The Galleria, Hatfield.
We also create and maintain gardens and green spaces for individuals, charities,
schools, churches, businesses and local authorities.
Our labour force comprises volunteers from all sections of society who enjoy horticultural
activities and who seek to extend their social network as well as doing some good
in the community.
We are seeking projects where we can use our skills and materials. These are performed
at very advantageous and economic rates.
During the winter we do not have set opening hours at The Roebuck site. If our gates
are open please come in or phone 07881226755 if wanting to fix a visit by appointment.
The Learning Garden is currently open on Wednesdays between 10-2pm and Sundays between
10am and 4pm but anytime our gates are open, please come in or phone 07881226755
if wanting to fix a visit by appointment.
