Full Description of Organisation

We provide therapeutic gardening sessions for people affected by low confidence, anxiety, depression or isolation. These individuals are invited to join Grow for Life as horticultural trainees.


Trainees attend weekly gardening sessions led by friendly and experienced gardeners, horticulturists and mentors. Together they help to look after beautiful gardens and greenhouses in and around Bath.


Trainees acquire horticultural skills in a fun, informal and encouraging environment, whilst having an opportunity for meaningful social interaction.


Over the winter, we are running tree planting days in the Bath area and also a workshop on hand scything.


Trainees who show resilience and an interest in Horticulture are invited to join our C & G course in Practical Horticulture which takes place on a Tuesday at the Parks Nursery, Victoria Park.
