Who will I help?

Horticultural therapy has the ability to support a person’s physical and mental health.

Share Horticulture helps their students to develop their ‘soft’ skills in their walled gardens in Tooting through confidence building, communication and team work. This not only allows for personal development, but Share provide their student with the opportunity to complete a horticultural qualification.

Through Share Horticultural program, students are given the opportunity to reach their full potential.

How will I help?

Volunteer at Share Horticulture to support their students through horticultural therapy that will help them strive towards independence but also achieve an accredited qualification.

You may find yourself:

• Helping to build the students confidence in gardening tasks
• Planting and seeding
• Working alongside students in upkeep of the garden

Your time and support will help both you and the students to develop soft skills in a green environment.

    :

    Share Gardens is a great community that helps people with various disabilities make the most of their skills. The staff were fantastically friendly and helpful and I had a great time planting flowers and building a mosaic with the people there. I highly recommend this experience.

    It was a great day spent with a group of people with whom I generally have very little contact. Share seems to be a great organisation and lives the mantra of helping people with what they can do rather than dealing with what they cannot do. I will be back!

    We had a great day volunteering with SHARE. We felt very welcomed by the team and were kept busy gardening all day!
