Stroke of genius

Our ‘Stroke of Genius’ group offers 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. Stroke survivors work with our team of experienced horticulturists and volunteers to develop new horticultural skills that are transferable to home. For 2019/20 we secured funding for an Occupational Therapist to support the group.

Unfortunately our Stroke of Genius group has been cancelled for the moment, due to the risks associated with COVID-19.  We hope to restart the group in due course, so please do contact us if you would like to refer someone to us.


Clients are referred by Adult Services or Stroke Association local coordinators but can also be self referred.

To join this group, please contact the Therapy Garden Manager via email at or on 01483 813846, or get in touch with your Stroke Association local co-ordinator. Once confirmed that a place can be offered, you can enrol by following the link below.
