Using the museum gardens as inspiration, this monthly club for isolated and vulnerable older adults and their carers aims to encourage lifelong learning, reconnect people with the natural world and contribute to each individual’s sense of well-being. Activities are carefully designed so they are accessible for people with physical and sensory disabilities; content varies from planting, growing and baking, to ceramics, printing and other garden-related arts and crafts.

Evergreen Gardeners 2012 - 2014
In January 2012 the Geffrye (supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation) began a weekly gardening and arts project for older people with additional needs and their carers. During 2013, the project expanded to include a community outreach programme.
