About Us

Hands-On Horticulture for Health and Wellbeing is a community project offering gardening courses, and a place just to be, to the general public and providing a day-service for people with defined needs in East Devon and Exeter.

Our two-acre garden is situated between the villages of Talaton and Feniton in East Devon, surrounded by views of mature trees and rolling Devon farmland.  The site is divided between productive fruit and vegetable growing and landscaped areas.



There is a place in the world for everyone to feel good about themselves.  You may wish simply to rest and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the gardens and, maybe, get Hands-On!



We welcome volunteers to help with the gardens (both the productive and ornamental, landscaped area), site development and maintenance, livestock and wildlife conservation.
