I got the following from the Ridgeline Trust:
"A couple of free introduction courses running at Ridgeline – therapeutic gardening in East Reading – if you have any individuals in mind, or can help spread the word?
1) We have a free 6 week social & horticultural therapy introduction course, at the garden, aimed at people with physical or mental disabilities, or carers, starting on Tue 10th Sep(for 2hrs, 10.30am - 12.30pm). We would like the group to be mixed, so on the whole would only like to see up to 2 people from a particular group or organisation. We are looking for 8-12 people for the course, we have a few people in mind so far. There will be a new course running from 29th October for a new batch of people if demand is high, and again early 2014.
2) We have a Sow & Grow course for people over 50, in association with Thrive. We need to determine demand before we can determine course length etc, but would like to do an initial session atleast. This would probably be on a Tues or Weds, around 2pm-4pm, with the session to take place before end of Sep."
