Green Therapy

Covid-19 Update

We are thrilled our Green Therapy classes have now returned in a ‘socially distanced’ way for those whom it is safe to do so.

All returning volunteers must respect social distancing & hygiene guidelines while at the garden and bring their own refreshments.

Using gardening, food growing, plants and horticulture to help individuals learn new skills, support development, promote health and well-being.
