Working in Care Homes and Day Centres
We currently work across the North London boroughs of Barnet, Brent and Haringey delivering flower, craft and gardening workshops. Creating flower arrangements seems to have a restorative effect on residents, especially those living with dementia. Our sessions improve social isolation with residents coming out of their rooms and comfort zones to take part. Listening to them share memories of their favourite flowers, gardening experiences or talking about their gardens is a real pleasure.
We've worked with residents to create herb beds and a fairy garden and have plans to make a vegetable patch where the produce can be used in their kitchen.
Our creative work with young offenders allows us to donate weekly flower arrangements to homes, day centres and community spaces, which are always warmly received.
