The link between green spaces and human health is widely acknowledged, with increasing calls for ‘therapeutic horticulture’ to be prescribed by health professionals.
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, physical disabilities and mental health challenges and offer school-age teenagers interventional education opportunities.
Based in the village of Normandy, Surrey, the charity was established in 1998 by a local resident, with the aim of using the healing power of horticulture to connect with vulnerable members of our community.
