“There’s nothing more beautiful than watching something grow – to tend it, nurture it and know you played your part”

Start Growing

Nurturing New Skills

Gardening is one of the most therapeutic activities we know. There’s a real sense of achievement when you can see, on maybe even taste, the fruits of your labour! Working in Start's garden and greenhoue at Brunswick House allows members to learn horticultural skills through a range of creative gardening projects.

To take part in these sessions please check whether you are eligible and ask your health worker/G.P to complete a referral form for our Inspiring Minds programme.


What people say about Start's Gardening sessions ...

“I feel more relaxed about coming here and the way things are going, and you can see how its taking its time and taking shape. You follow it through and reap it in the end. It benefits me in the sense that I can stand up and say, well, I made the bleeding thing grow!”
