We are delighted that Thrive, which is the UK’s leading charity using horticulture to benefit people touched by disability, will be offering this course from Foxhole Community Garden.
This is a unique chance to take this training in the south west without needing to travel up to Thrive venues in Reading and London.
Since its foundation in 1978 Thrive has championed the benefits of gardening and run therapeutic programmes across the UK.
This course can be used towards Thrive’s Award in Social and Therapeutic Horticulture Programme Development (www.thrive.org.uk/award-in-social-and-therapeutic-horticulture-programme-development.aspx)
With an increasing concern for the mental well-being of children, social and therapeutic horticulture can promote healthy living, self-esteem and confidence.
Participants on this course will understand the theory of using social and therapeutic horticulture with children and learn practical approaches to using gardens for engagement and well-being.
Create therapeutic programmes aimed at addressing individual and group needs and explore the use of assessment in social and therapeutic horticulture with children in diverse settings.
“Greater understanding of STH benefits, in depth planning of STH programmes and ideas for practical tasks.”
