Being outside, surrounded by plants and nature, doing physical activity can all help us feel better about ourselves. And the potential benefits for people experiencing mental health difficulties can be even more significant. As part of Mental Health Awareness Week (13 to 19 May 2019), Reading Gardening Health and Wellbeing Network is offering professionals the opportunity to visit local gardening projects and see how they might help people.
The network is made up of local horticultural therapy and community gardening organisations, and promotes gardening as a means of improving health and wellbeing. Ridgeline is part of the network, and we’re looking forward to welcoming visitors during the week.
