Growing

Our trainees are supported and encouraged by skilled horticultural key workers to undertake tasks such as sowing seeds, potting up, pricking out, weeding and composting.

There are many proven benefits of social and therapeutic horticulture for adults with learning and or physical disabilities these can include:

  • Improved physical health and mobility.
  • Learning new skills and improving the chances of finding paid employment
  • Improved mental health through a sense of purpose and achievement
  • Being outside in the fresh air and reducing feelings of isolation and exclusion

We grow all kinds of vegetable crops, soft fruits, Christmas trees, trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and seasonal bedding plants and we can also provide made to order hanging baskets and flower displays.
