Kevin Heinze GROW works with children and adults of all abilities to provide, enhance and promote the benefits of horticulture based therapy.


Throughout the world therapeutic horticulture is used to enhance human health and assist in preventing serious medial conditions such as stress, anxiety and depression. Therapeutic horticulture has a long history of contributing to the health and well-being of aged care residents, people with disabilities, those in recovery or rehabilitation and people with mental health disorders. This in turn can contribute to an increase in confidence leading to higher participation rates in employment and social activities.

As a not-for-profit organisation we rely heavily on the support of volunteers and donors.  Our Committee of Management are all volunteers, and many of our services involve volunteer support to run effectively.  We are very grateful for the support we receive from philanthropic Trusts and Foundations, the Manningham City Council, Kiwanis Club, State and Federal governments, as well as our donors, whose support is vital to the success of our organisation.

At Kevin Heinze GROW everyone can benefit from horticulture based therapy. Over 50 years of international research has proven that plants are vital for human health and well-being . Our activities promote social inclusion, laughter and friendship.
