Brighton and Hove Food Partnership weekly dementia friendly gardening sessions provide a gentle, regular activity with a friendly group and a chance to build confidence. There is lots of national evidence about the benefits of gardening for people with dementia.
Participants and carers can contact us directly to book, or be referred through professionals. The sessions are suitable for those with mild to moderate dementia and carers are welcome to attend as well.
When: Weekly Tuesday sessions, 10:30am-12pm, from 24th July to 9th October 2018.
Where: The Emmaus Centre, Drove Road, Portslade, Brighton, BN41 2PA. We work in the garden and polytunnel space behind the main Emmaus shop, which ensures we have a covered space to sit and enjoy a cup of tea. There are toilet and hand washing facilities on site.
