Good Soil originally featured in a series hosted by Monty Don back in the mid 2000s which relocated to Top Barn Farm in Worcestershire. It was an acronym for 'Growing Out Of Dependency Seeking Objectives In Life', encouraging prolific offenders to work on a smallholding. By 2012, Good Soil had become an organisation with a distinctly Christian ethos and heart. This resulted in an amalgalmation with two other local charities - Worcester City Mission and Word of Life Worcester - to become The Good Soil Trust in 2014.
It has been a slow but steady journey into what we see today - a charity which outreaches to the poor and crushed in spirit, journeying with people who long for change and want to be committed to changing but are often at the end of being offered ongoing support, for many differing reasons.
