“I feel we are very fortunate living in Ash as there are many opportunities for people to get involved, make friends, learn new skills and be a part of the community we live in.
I hope you find something that interests you.”
Pauline Baxter, a local Ash volunteer
The Therapy Garden
The Therapy Garden is a horticulture and education charity that uses gardening to generate positive change.
We work with adults and teenagers with learning difficulties and physical disabilities on a range of horticulture projects. Green School gives teenagers aged 14 to 18 the chance to gain a City & Guilds vocational qualification-Skills for Working Life: Horticulture.
Our Grow to Work project supports 19- to 25-year-olds with their transition from school or college to the workplace by offering further training and work experience maintaining local gardens or in our shop selling our home grown produce.
Stroke survivors and clients living with Alzheimer’s or dementia are offered social and therapeutic horticulture and adult clients with anxiety, stress and depression or other mental health challenges are referred to us by Adult Social Services.
We aim to help our service users improve psychologically, physically and socially and provide the opportunity to enter into further education, training and employment.
We are always looking for new volunteers to work in the garden with our clients or if you would like to support The Therapy Garden you can enjoy or fundraising events, join us as a member or visit our onsite shop to buy seasonal plants and fresh produce grown in our garden.
