One of the most interesting things about networking and visiting other therapeutic gardening projects is seeing how others do things and sharing ideas and enthusiasm. If you can't get along to one of our networking meetings, which are held throughout the year across Scotland, see www.trellisscotland.org.uk for details of current networking events, then consider visiting therapeutic gardens in the Trellis network. For garden details see the online Trellis Directory of Therapeutic Gardening Projects in Scotland

We have gathered together web sites and film clips of gardening projects across the world to give you a flavour of how therapeutic gardening is carried out globally. If you come across any inspirational and interesting gardening projects please send us a link, details and we can include them on this page.
