Green Health Thames Valley has been providing free therapeutic horticulture sessions since 2014. We are a small charity that provides support with mental health challenges through a tailored programme of horticulture-based activities, with a focus on intensive support. This sets us apart from many other gardening-based projects.

Our clients are members of the local community who are recovering from or at risk of mental health difficulties, social isolation and socio-economic exclusion. Health professionals, and others, have long recognised the therapeutic benefits of gardening.

“Gardening can do what medicine only ‘tries to mimic’ for mental health”.
