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.

          STOP PRESS!

      We have recently held our fourth biennial Gardeners' Question Time event which was a great success.  People came to the Holmer Parish Church Centre for an evening of fun, plus interesting and diverse questions and answers.  This was in front of our panel of experts - Duncan Coombs, Nick Dunn, and Tamsin Westhorpe, brilliantly chaired by Sir Roy Strong CH.  There was also a raffle with some splendid prizes generously donated.

"The experiences [our pupils] are gaining at Growing Point are really exceptional - and moving the opportunity to KS4 has been a total success."

"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".
