Life Changers
Life Changers is a programme for those living with life-changing health conditions to experience the joy of gardening in Thrive’s Main Garden in Battersea Park.

Whether recovering from a stroke, cancer or surgery, or living with a long term condition like diabetes, multiple sclerosis or Long Covid, people experiencing a life-changing health condition can experience the joy of gardening, build new friendships and increase social networks and build confidence to regain or maintain an active, healthy and independent life.

Trained horticultural therapists create seasonally appropriate gardening tasks with typical activities including seed sowing, propagation and potting on and planting out, planting salad/herb containers to encourage healthy eating, or craft activities e.g. Christmas wreaths.

Recruitment to the programme is on a rolling basis with beneficiaries attending for 16 weeks before being signposted to further opportunities.
