Gardening and social and therapeutic horticulture - Thrive Trunkwell Beech Hill, Reading

Thrive is a small national charity, founded in 1978, that uses gardening to change the lives of disabled people.

Thrive uses gardening to help people regain confidence, build self esteem and motivation, feel better physically and mentally and create new social networks.

The majority of therapeutic work takes place in our gardens.

Gardening can help individuals accomplish many things. It can help rebuild a person’s strength after an accident or illness, and can provide a purposeful activity for someone coping with a difficult period in their life.
