Lemon Tree Trust transforms refugee and IDP (internally displaced people) camps, one garden at a time.

Gardening is a powerful therapeutic tool, addressing issues of isolation and mental health, producing beauty, belonging, food security, and promising economic stimulation.

We organise agricultural businesses and gardening initiatives in refugee communities, creating employment, and restoring cultural identity, dignity and purpose. Through the provision of seeds and plants, we empower social and economic change.

Our long-term vision is to expose every refugee camp in the world to garden competitions and to encourage self-sustaining ventures run by and for refugees.
