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 2018/19 we secured funding for an Occupational Therapist to support the group.

The group currently meet on the second Wednesday of the month.
