Breathing Green Air


Thrive and the British Lung Foundation have formed a partnership to deliver a 12-week gardening programme designed specifically for people living with a lung condition.

If you enjoy gardening and want to get out more, then a Breathing Green Air course could be right for you. 

On the programme you will: 

- Learn new skills
- Stay active
- Meet new people from the local community
- See how gardening can be made easier

The programme is being led by a Thrive horticultural therapist who each week will take participants through a wide variety of gardening activities. 

Next dates

The next Breathing Green Air programmes will start in spring 2018 and will run for 12 weeks at our Reading and Birmingham regional centres. 

They are free to attend and open to anyone living with a lung condition. To find out more or to sign up please contact Mayana at the British Lung Foundation on 0207 688 5570 or email
