The Stepping Stones programme promotes positive mental health and provides regular opportunities for young people to use creativity to build emotional resilience. The high quality programmes are delivered by professional artists and held in Hampshire Cultural Trust venues. Joining the programme will boost confidence, communication and social skills. It is fun, can make you feel great and is a great way to meet other young people in a safe and supportive space.

In this hands-on, outdoor experience, participants will join award-winning garden designer and social media influencer Leigh Johnstone, aka The Beardy Gardener, to learn about various aspects of gardening, such as planting, nurturing and harvesting, to help transform the garden at Aldershot Military Museum into a space of calm and tranquility. Young people can expect to get dirty as each session is practical, from sowing seeds to making their own compost!

 

WHAT’S INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAMME HOW TO GET INVOLVED

To be eligible for this programme participants need to be aged 11 – 17 years. Bookings can be made for one-off sessions or multiple sessions in one go; we are also happy for a young person to attend one session during the Easter holidays and then decide if they want to attend future sessions. This programme is free of charge and all materials will be provided. To register interest in any of these programmes, please go to https://bit.ly/4b5Hz5K
