Horticultural therapy at our
Greenfingers allotment project



Greenfingers Deputy Manager

Our gardening therapy allotment in the centre of Basingstoke is a safe and peaceful environment for learning-disabled people to spend time, meet new people and gain new skills in horticulture and woodwork.

If you are interested in gaining qualifications, we also offer an NVQ in Horticulture here on site. 

We grow, consume and educate about healthy produce, leading to better eating habits and improved general well-being. 

For more information, or to arrange a FREE trial session, please call us or email – we look forward to meeting you soon!
