Gardening for children and young people    
No longer just an extra-curricular activity, the benefits of gardening as a teaching tool for children and young people have been widely demonstrated.

Research by the Royal Horticultural Society in 2010 showed the enormous impact gardening has on well-being, learning and development, finding children and young people who were encouraged to take part in gardening developed more resilience, confidence and healthier lives.

  The research undertaken by the RHS claims that,
not only does it develop scientific knowledge and understanding but also improves, literacy, numeracy and oracy as well as the other social benefits.

Individuals and groups are welcome. If you are interested in the benefits of social and therapeutic gardening or would just like to know more, you are very welcome to contact us at:
