About The Therapy Garden

The Therapy Garden is a horticulture and education charity that uses gardening to have a positive and significant impact on the lives of people facing challenges in life. In our beautiful and tranquil 2 acre working garden we offer a supportive learning environment within a calm and protective space where visitors are able to reconnect with nature and the outdoors. The garden’s planting changes throughout the seasons to ensure an on-going array of colour and produce. The Therapy Garden is a unique space offering ‘social and therapeutic horticulture’. The Garden provides interest all year round, from its Stumpery and Medieval Herb Garden to its Cut Flower Garden and Wildlife Pond. We have a ‘Living Roof’ Shelter and a calm and restful ‘Garden Room’. Our vegetable gardens are planted with a range of produce every year, including brassicas, legumes, root vegetables and soft fruit and we have a small, fledgling orchard. The garden is wheelchair friendly with hand-built raised flower and vegetable beds and a series of poly tunnels and indoor growing spaces with dedicated propagation equipment. Depending on the season, our bespoke market cart allows us to present a wide variety of bedding plants, perennials, vegetable plants, seedlings, and hanging baskets for sale. All are grown or potted on in the Garden and we are also able to stock the cart with a selection of our home-grown fruit and vegetables, jams and chutneys, as well as cards and gifts. We recently acquired a half-acre extension to our plot which we are in the process of incorporating into the garden. This new land was originally scrubland, thick with brambles, weed and roots, and we are working through the process of restoring it to cultivatable condition. The team of volunteers who assist at the Therapy Garden were very proud to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Volunteering.
