Thrive gardens and projects

Thrive has three regional centres. The charity's main garden and head office is in the pretty village of Beech Hill in Berkshire (south of Reading).

We also work in Battersea Park, London and Kings Heath Park, Birmingham.

The charity runs outreach projects at schools, hostels, hospitals, care homes and other community settings such as libraries and community setting and looks for funding to do this.

Community Projects

Thrive client gardeners come to us by many different paths. Some are referred by Social Services or support workers, or via another health care professional such as their GP. We also welcome people who come to Thrive independently or are referred by a family member, school or another charity.

If you are unable to attend one of our project at our gardens, or something we run in the community, usually surrounding our three regional bases, we do hold a database of around 900 garden projects in the UK and can put you in touch with those in your local area.

There are many different types of garden project but they all use a garden setting and activities to benefit people’s lives. Projects are located on allotments, in community gardens or at nurseries, hospitals and even prisons. The services and support offered varies according to the setting and needs of the disabled people attending the project.
