Introducing the Gardening for Disabled Trust

The Trust was founded back in 1968, by a far-sighted philanthropist, Mrs Peggy Kinsey. She understood the real value of what we now know as 'horticultural therapy'...that is, getting outside in the fresh air, being a little active, ''getting the soil under the fingernails'' (her words) and that very special pleasure which is gardening.

Her Trust was founded in the spirit of generosity, energy, and enthusiasm; values which are very much in evidence within the Trust, half a century later.
