Let’s get growing!

Gardening is increasingly being used as a fun and accessible therapeutic intervention to improve people’s health and wellbeing.

We run restorative gardening sessions for individuals and groups. We also help organisations to set up and start delivering their own Garden to Wellbeing programmes.

Client gardeners include children, youth groups, refugees, domestic abuse survivors, people living with dementia and those with additional support needs such as autism.

Whether it’s an allotment project or tiny yard, we’ll help you to make the most of the space so you can start growing.

We will keep you inspired and motivated by sharing ideas, experience and resources.
