What is Social and Therapeutic Horticulture - for counsellors, practitioners and anyone with a personal interest in the discipline.

About this event

What is Social and Therapeutic Horticulture and how can we practice it? Who can it benefit?

This workshop will look at how gardening can have therapeutic results. It will be of benefit to those interested personally in the use of horticulture as a therapy as well as professionals working with clients in a horticultural environment. We will look at the practical and theoretical aspects of using horticulture to improve well-being in different ways. This will take into account potential clients' needs and the physical environment available.

Directions to site


The Centre for Ecotherapy allotment is located in the Stanmer Wellbeing Gardens at the far end of Stanmer Park. 

Drive into Stanmer Park and follow the main route into the park until you pass Stanmer House on your left.

Take a left at the T-junction. You will see a white sign board for us in front of you on the bank. At the next fork (there are three options) go straight up between the turning into Stanmer Nurseries and the turning into Plumpton College. Again, look for our white sign and follow the arrow. This road passes a row of buildings on the left and has trees on the right. This road becomes a track and, at a big green shipping container on the left, the track turns 90 degrees to the right and continues uphill. The track is bumpy, please drive carefully Continue up the hill and we are the first allotment on the right hand side.

You can park opposite the allotment or a little bit further up.
