Looking at plants in the greenhouse
We offer a range of courses and workshops for people new to Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) as well as those who are looking to advance their STH journey.
On this page:

The courses we offer cover all levels from a person starting out in STH all the way up to an experienced practitioner who is looking to gain an accredited qualification. Our Thrive Learning Pathway summarises the core learning courses we currently run.

Courses are delivered in the following ways:

  • Online learning (free and paid for)
  • Blended learning (combining live events with additional online content)
  • Face-to-face classroom style

Below is a list of our current courses in date order. Please note our online courses are available all year round and appear without a date.

Our next Thrive online CPD event is on 26th March. Find more information and book your place here.
