Gardening for blind or partially sighted people

Thrive has worked with visually impaired gardeners for over 30 years and we are able to draw on a wealth of experience and tried-and-trusted techniques for gardening with low vision.

We offer a range of services for people who wish to garden either as a new activity or to continue to enjoy gardening after sight loss. We have information to support you to garden at home, and can help to get you together with other blind and partially sighted people who are interested in gardening.

Thrive also offers support to professionals working with blind and partially sighted people who wish to garden.
