3rd to 9th June 2019 is National Growing for Wellbeing Week.
National Growing for Wellbeing Week is a celebration of the magic that growing your own produce can do for your wellbeing, both physically and mentally.
Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience mental ill health each year. There is strong evidence highlighting the health benefits of gardening and GYO in particular, including improved confidence, communication, concentration and ultimately self-belief.
It’s not just gardening – It’s improving mental health, experiencing better physical health, connecting with others, acquiring new skills, and enjoying the great outdoors.
