Herefordshire Growing Point encourages and assists people who are unable to manage traditional methods of growing plants to enjoy the social and therapeutic benefits of horticultural activities. Individual needs are met through utilising several alternative gardening techniques together with adapted tools and accessories.

"Clients are always content and relaxed in the garden atmosphere.  The variety of horticultural activities on offer results in positive achievement for all – the experience is as important as what is actually achieved by clients."  

Tutor for a client group with multiple disabilities

"Growing Point continues to both inspire and entertain our members, and the tutor has been very innovative in his ideas.  My assessment of the impact of Growing Point on our members is that it is very positive as it stimulates their knowledge and skills. The quiz certainly helps with their memory”.

Age Concern

"I don't feel disabled any more when I come to Herefordshire Growing Point".
