Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all Thrive regional centres have closed for the foreseeable future.

All therapeutic horticulture programmes for clients at Birmingham, London and Reading have been suspended until further notice and staff are working from home where possible.

Thrive has also postponed all face-to-face social and therapeutic horticulture training courses, with refunds or alternative dates being available for those who have paid to attend forthcoming courses. Anyone with training enquiries should email

Meanwhile, we have a range of exciting and engaging online courses for you to access on our Thrive Learn website.

Stay up to date with our work by signing up to our monthly enews or follow us on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

Thrive Gardening Club 

In response to the crisis, we are launching a new free resource to help people keep well. Delivered straight to your email box, the Thrive Gardening Club will offer fortnightly tips to get the most out of your own garden.

It’ll include activities for children, tips to help you garden if you have a disability or long-term health condition, and plenty of information about how gardening can keep you healthy and feeling well.

And if you don’t have your own garden to enjoy, we’ll show you ways you can still access the benefits of connecting with nature.

You can sign up to the Thrive Gardening Club here.
