Introduction to STH
In May 2017 we responded to a request from the network Women Farmers & Gardeners Association (WFGA) and provided a 1 day workshop introducing experienced gardeners to the principles and practice of social and therapeutic horticulture (STH). Feedback was overwhelmingly positive:
“a fantastic general introduction: loads of information and practical ideas”
“had a lovely day with lovely people; keep up the good work!”
Visitors find a tour of our mature site and talking to our staff can provide practical insights in how to take it forward themselves. Recent examples include:
Similar organisation in Loughborough providing sessions and support for adults with learning disabilities seeking advice on developing sessions for mental health conditions. Was your purpose achieved?
“Yes! Yes! Yes! – impressed by all aspects of your project and its management… what shines through is the joy and pride of all the people involved”
Community support worker on fact finding mission:
“The purpose was fully achieved…. My visit has showed me what a lovely environment the team have developed in order to deliver green therapeutic activities in an urban environment”
We can take taster sessions of STH or singing out to other organisations as health enhancing activities in their own right and as a way of encouraging people to join other groups. A 2 hour taster session costs £80 upwards depending on client numbers. Contact office for details.
