Thrive is the leading charity in the UK using gardening to change the lives of disabled people. Thrive uses gardening to bring about positive changes in the lives of people living with disabilities or ill health, or who are isolated, disadvantaged or vulnerable.
Using specific gardening tasks and the garden environment Thrive horticultural therapists build a set of activities for each gardener aimed at improving their health and wellbeing and achieving particular goals identified by the gardener themselves or by their family, support workers or carers. Thrive runs garden and park projects nationally. We have gardens in Beech Hill near Reading, Berkshire, and also in Battersea Park, London.
