Grow and Learn was initiated by the social
and therapeutic horticultural organisation Thrive. This site brings
together a range of accessible information for you to learn about gardening
and try out your literacy, numeracy and ICT Skills. The step by step gardening
guides, activities and interactive games have been tried and tested by a
wide range of learners and are based on the work carried out by Thrive since 1978.
Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines

technology. The site has been built using Web Accessibility Initiative guidelines
and content creation standards specified by the National Grid for Learning
ensuring that Grow and Learn is accessible and easy to use. Simple on screen
instructions allow you to easily move around the site, play the games and
