Stroke of genius

The Therapy Garden is now able to offer social and therapeutic horticulture to stroke and brain injury survivors. Gardening promotes a feeling of well-being whilst providing gentle exercise, which can benefit long-term recovery. Attendees can take part in a range of gardening activities such as growing, harvesting and maintaining the gardens and are able to enjoy activities at their own pace, in a peaceful and supportive environment. The group currently meet on the second Wednesday of the month.

Stroke survivors work with our team of experienced horticulturists and volunteers to develop new horticultural skills that are transferable to home. Clients are referred to us by local coordinators of national charities such as the Stroke Association or through their GP, but can also be self referred.
