The Accessible Gardening range has been developed by Forest Garden in conjunction with Thrive, a national charity which promotes gardening as a way of improving the lives of disabled and vulnerable people facing physical or mental health challenges. The products are designed especially for anyone needing to sit, stand or kneel to garden, and include planters, raised beds, troughs and even a cold frame. Forest Garden makes an annual donation to Thrive to help the organisation continue its good work.
