Gardeners, staff and volunteers from Thrive Birmingham organised a sponsored walk around the parks of South Birmingham in March 2018 and raised a fantastic £1,318!
And our 'Meet the Purple People' open days in April over the Easter holidays were brilliant ... thanks to everyone who came.
In June we were thrilled that judges awarded us a Silver Merit AND best outdoor feature at BBC Gardeners’ World Live at the NEC in Birmingham.
The 'Garden of Celebration’ was designed by Thrive staff and volunteers in association with Regency School – whose students attend our Grow and Learn programme in Kings Heath Park, Birmingham.
Our first ever flower proved a huge success in 2018. On hand was our ambassador Mark Lane to judge and present the medals
2018 also saw the start of our new Grow & Learn programme for Oscott, Chadsgrove and Fox Hollies schools, with Regency School starting their second year funded by local trust and grant providers.
There will be a number of events held during 2019 including volunteer taster sessions, tours and plant sales. As soon as the dates are finalised we’ll list them below.
