Flower Pod offers our clients the opportunity to participate in the growth, care and selling of beautiful cut-flowers.

Located on 1.5 acres on the Nottingham Trent University Brackenhurst campus close to Southwell, Flower Pod is a relaxing setting where adults with learning disabilities work with local people to grow and sell flowers.  It offers unique learning and recreational activities that help our clients gain important skills needed for independent living.  It also harnesses the opportunity to build new friendships, enjoy physical activity and learn about the natural world.

For Reach, Flower Pod generates an income based on sales of cut-flowers to the local community and beyond.  Increasingly, our flowers are bought for weddings and funerals, and are dried to produce environmentally-friendly confetti.  Consumers have the opportunity to buy locally produced flowers with a low carbon footprint whilst supporting some of the most vulnerable people in society.

If you would like to order our flowers, be involved as a client, carer, volunteer or funder in any way please visit the Flower Pod website or telephone 01636 918271.
