Welcome to Trellis

We're the place to come to for know-how about therapeutic gardening, the art of using gardening to help people take care of their physical, emotional and social wellbeing.

We support a network of over 300 therapeutic gardening projects in Scotland so they can share skills, good practice and get connected.

Trellis runs training workshops and an information service, and we can visit you to give help and advice. We support research and development in therapeutic gardening. And we make sure that the voice of our network is heard by policy makers.

We bring people together. Come and join us, we're here to help you.

  What people say about our sharing knowledge skills and good practice events:
 "an absolutely brilliant day - I gained an enormous amount from it and really appreciate the time spent on putting this together."

"I hadn't appreciated just how much of an understanding of working with people from all walks of life could be gained by listening to such specialised and committed carers - everybody who works with anybody should be attending these events "

 Trellis CPD training courses are endorsed by the  IOH logo

We are currently developing knowledge, skills and good practice sharing events for the 2015-16 programme. If you would like to suggest a topic or a venue for these sessions please contact us on 01738 624348 or email Jenny
