Paul Pulford, a former heroin and alcohol addict, spent seven years living on the street before an outreach worker persuaded him to move into a hostel and draw on his interest in nature to develop new skills. In 2005, Paul created the ‘Grounded Ecotherapy’ to provide members with skills in horticulture, maintenance and gardening, which not only provides therapy for those in the process of recovery but can be used to secure full-time employment.
