The Ridgeline Trust's Garden Project

Find out how horticultural therapy and community gardening can help improve mental health and wellbeing

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 your clients. The network is made up of local horticultural therapy and community gardening organisations, and promotes gardening as a means of improving health and wellbeing.
