Flowers for LifeFlowers for Life is a therapeutic gardening, floristry and craft project that takes place at the OASIS Community Centre & Gardens in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.  It uses flowers to help volunteers to learn new skills and develop their abilities, and also to interact socially, to reduce isolation, to help people's health and wellbeing and to inspire people to get involved in nature and the arts. 

The project benefits a range of people including those with special needs, the unemployed, the elderly and people recovering from mental health problems all of whom take part in a range of activities including growing, harvesting and preparing cut flowers, floristry, photography, drawing, painting, sewing, needlework and a range of crafts using dried flowers.  This resulted in an exhibition to showcase and celebrate the Flowers For Life project at several local country fairs in 2019.
