Growing Roots - Horticultural Therapists Networking Event

A networking morning for facilitators working in therapeutic garden projects was  held at the Bishop’s Palace in Wells in early October.    The event was funded by UnLtd’s Spark award and provided an opportunity to exchange ideas, make new contacts and walk around the Community Garden there. Dale Cranshaw from Growing Support in Bristol gave a talk focussing on the needs of older people with dementia and how gardening helps meet their needs.   It is hoped that there will be further networking events.
