(Please note - the National Blind Gardeners' Club ended in July 2010).

This publication is ideal if you would like to start a local gardening club for blind and partially sighted people, but are feeling a little daunted because you’re not sure where to start.

The guide draws on the experience of gardeners and professionals who have successfully launched their own club and has advice and information, tips from visually impaired gardeners, programme ideas and useful contact details. The guide is written in a friendly ‘Question and Answer’ format.

Subjects covered include: what do do at the club; where to meet; funding; legalities and health & safety; a sample constitution; notes on guiding; sample risk assessment; information about CRB clearance.

Gardening Together is available as a free PDF download here
