Client Trip: Snowdrop Teas Open Day at Braziers Park.

Today we visited the community at Brazier’s Park in Ipsden to see their amazing display of snowdrops. Despite the rainy weather we all enjoyed strolling along the paths taking in the beautiful winter flowers. We were given a guided tour of the vegetable garden and the greenhouses by resident Sarah. We finished the morning with tea and cake in the drawing room of the main house.

We all agreed that we’d love to visit again later in the season and see how different everything looks with the sun out.

We are looking for volunteers to carry out routine gardening tasks at our small garden in Whitley, working alongside staff and Clients to help maintain the garden.

Reading Gardening for Health

In September 2019 Green Health Thames Valley was at the launch of:
The Reading Gardening for Health and Wellbeing Network, hosted by The Ridgeline Trust Therapeutic Gardens.

Reading Gardening for Health and Wellbeing Network is a collaboration of horticultural therapy and community gardening groups in the Greater Reading area. The network promotes the value of gardening for health and wellbeing for lots of different people. We share information, skills and experience to help each other and ultimately all the people who come to our gardens.

We are delighted to be part of this network of 10 community gardens and horticultural therapy organisations in the Greater Reading area.
