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.
