Thrive is a national charity that uses gardening to bring about positive changes in the lives of people living with disabilities or ill-health, or who are isolated, disadvantaged or vulnerable.
Gardening is now a proven therapy as a safe, secure way to develop someone's ability to mix socially and make friends, and to learn practical skills to become more independent.
Thrive's garden project in Battersea Park features three glorious gardens created entirely through the skills and commitment of the charity's beneficiaries - disabled people from across London.
From our newly refurbished main garden on East Carriage Drive you can purchase plants and herbs potted up by our gardeners, and there is opportunity to visit the herb garden and Old English garden, where volunteers will be able to answer any questions you may have.
