“Not a query, just a note of gratitude. I haven’t been able to get to the last few meetings but there was a time when they were a real life-saver for me.
Just being in a roomful of fellow gardeners with all that warmth and cheerfulness, all those shared experiences and learning from each other – such an important boost in every way. I just wanted to thank all you at Trellis for making that happen: I can’t tell you what a big deal you’ve been to me.”
Therapeutic Gardening Practitioner John, writing at the time of his retirement from
mental health project, Lothlorien.
Garden projects are often isolated and running on meagre resources. The potential and impacts of their work often go unrecognised. That's why our support services are needed. We enable people to develop high quality therapeutic services that benefit thousands of people every week. Find out more here about our Training Events, Information Services, Network & Good Practice Sharing Days, Research Dissemination, Annual Conference and Awareness Raising work.
As with all effective health interventions, therapeutic gardening is an evidence-based practice. We make improvements to our work guided by the latest published, peer-reviewed research and try to share new evidence widely with practitioners so that they can make sure they're up to date.
