The Gardening is good for you campaign, supported by National Garden Gift Vouchers, reveals just how good gardening is for you, no matter your age or experience.
Gardening has many benefits for your health and wellbeing. These include providing exercise and staying active, relieving stress, grounding and connecting with nature, satisfying creativity and learning new skills, enjoying and sharing your garden with family and friends, and feeding your mind, body and soul.
We want you to enjoy the full sensory value and experience of plants, like their fragrance and flavour, plus we’ll be sharing with you how to grow your own tasty fruits, herbs and crops, how to encourage wildlife into your garden, how to create an outdoor space for relaxation and mindfulness, and generally how to connect with the natural world outside your own back door.
Look out for our seasonal topics promoting gardening, health and wellbeing activities. We’ll be highlighting plants at their best, topical planting opportunities to create beautiful gardens and displays, plus timely activities to get you outside to enjoy your own personal space and share it with family and friends.
Gardening really is good for you, and for the health and wellbeing of everyone!
