Community Projects

Most Thrive gardeners are referred by Social Services or come to us through a professional such as their GP. We also welcome people who come to Thrive independently.

In the the community we bring people together to garden inside village halls and libraries in Berkshire, Hampshire and South Oxfordshire. Find out more about our Sow and Grow project here.

Thrive holds the database of around 900 garden projects in the UK and we 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.
