This guide looks at the ways in which social and therapeutic horticulture projects can help foster independence, build self-esteem and confidence, and provide training and employment opportunities for people with health and social problems.
It will be of use to anyone thinking about setting up social and therapeutic horticultural services for vulnerable groups or for those already running a project but who want to understand the nature and extent of provision currently available in the UK.
This guide was produced as part of the Growing Together study, the first detailed study of horticulture and gardening projects across the UK.
Growing Together is a partnership between Thrive and Loughborough University and has been funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
