Attending a community gardening session

Alive run three community gardening groups across Bristol.

Alive has a dementia-friendly allotment at Charlton Road Allotments in Brentry. We run therapeutic horticulture sessions there all year round for older people and people in the community living with dementia, as well as an intergenerational session for kids and older people. Find out more about getting involved.

The Wellspring Settlement community garden sessions are open to anyone living in Barton Hill and the surrounding area. They are suitable for adults of any age, ability and background. To Find out more click here.

The Lawrence Weston community gardening sessions are open to anyone living in the Lawrence Weston area. They are suitable for adults of any age and ability, but as they are based at Blaise Weston Court, the group will predominantly consist of older people.
