sweet peasWelcome 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.

10K for 10 Years

Join Trellis in celebrating our 10th birthday by taking part in our 10K for 10 Years Fundraising Challenge this October. Walk, run, swim, cycle, skip or hop 10K- whatever takes your fancy - and raise funds to help Trellis support even more people through therapeutic gardening.

Take part by following our 10K for 10 Years guide. Simply create a fundraising page or download a sponsor form, ask your friends and family to sponsor you and let us know how and where you did it by posting photos on our fundraising page and social media. Alternatively, you can support us by sponsoring Team Trellis

Start or end your walk with a guided tour of the gardens on Wednesday afternoons 
Or on Friday 14th October By the light of the fire   at 6.30pm Storytelling, music and  food  by firelight - a lovely end to a 10k walk or cycle. Entry to the event, including food, is free.
