SMILE Gardening Group

The Gardening group was created during the pandemic when SMILE realised that our services users needed somewhere safe to go during the pandemic whilst hospitality and day to day services were closed. Gardening group is based in the SMILE office garden  where our service users can learn garden skills and knowledge on flowers,  planting vegetables, wildlife and their environments.  

The Group is run by Sadie.. Sadie loves planning all sorts of exciting activities and is keen to expand her knowledge in the garden. As a group we learn together by supporting each other.

The SMILE Gardening group is about learning the skills you need to keep your garden looking great all year round, knowing when and how to plant all types of useful vegetables and to enjoy yourself in the garden to promote a healthy wellbeing.. This is achieved by connecting with others, gardening skills, keeping active and healthy. When the weather is bad we are sensible and do indoor crafts and activities such as bird house making, indoor planting and various other useful activities working towards gardening and wildlife themes. occasionally we visit garden centers to do research and planning for the garden. By completing these tasks our goal is to ensure our service users grow in confidence, live an independent happier lifestyle, to try new things and have fun with lots of laughter and enjoyment.
