Flower Pod is a horticultural based Social Enterprise located just outside the historic cathedral town of Southwell in Nottinghamshire.

We are part of Reach Learning Disability, a charity that provides day-centre care and domiciliary support for people with learning disabilities. Flower Pod is one of the four Reach bases in Southwell, Newark and Mansfield.

Our 1.5 acre eco-friendly site creates an enchanting environment where employees, volunteers and people with learning disabilities come together to produce and sell beautiful cut flowers, natural confetti, wreaths and other locally sourced products.

Buying from Flower Pod is a great way to support our activities and contribute directly to reducing our dependency on external funding. Visit the Flower Pod Shop to find out more.

Discover the many ways you can get involved, such as volunteering, providing support as a local business or involving us in local events. Our straw-bale building makes a great venue for educational activities, social events or meetings and you can book a tour of the garden for your own association or group of friends.

If you would like to know more about our services for people with learning disabilities or find out how to get involved in Flower Pod please do contact us – we would love to hear from you.
