Justlife features in magazine
On a corner of the Wiston Estate in Washington (near Brighton), you’ll find vulnerable people growing fresh produce within a six acre market garden.For those who attend the site, Roots to Growth is a sanctuary from their everyday life and offers a chance for inspiration and transformation. Roots to Growth is a highlight of the Justlife week, a sanctuary from hard lives of homelessness and an opportunity to make friends, build skills and work hard.
“All About Horsham” magazine spoke to Tom, Ashley, Omar and Phil from Justlife – who all visit the site on a weekly basis.

I’m sofa surfing as I’m homeless, which makes it very difficult to find work. But at Roots to Growth I’m always busy and I like it that way.
