Ridgeline Trust Therapeutic Garden

The Ridgeline Trust

We help people to improve their mental and physical health in our beautiful garden in East Reading

We help people access the benefits of horticultural therapy at our accessible garden, to enable them to recover and develop their skills, boost their confidence and enjoy time with others.

Our sessions are suitable for those living with disabilities or facing mental and physical health issues. Our sessions are led by experienced horticultural therapists and supported by volunteers.
