Have you or a loved one been recently diagnosed with a dementia or a mild cognitive impairment? 

Budding Friends is our social gardening and art therapy group for people living with a dementia and their carers.

We spend as much time as possible during the year outside on our allotment but the British weather doesn’t stop us meeting during the colder months. Working with Studio 36, we offer the opportunity to partake in a unique art experience, we also organise trips to local attractions such as National Trust gardens and occasionally go out for meals at local pubs and @34 restaurant at Exeter College.

If you are over 50 and interested in joining this dynamic, friendly group, contact Penny on 01392 202092. No gardening experience needed!
