Mental health

Mindful gardening

Many gardeners correctly sense intuitively that gardening promotes good mental health. It also supports the recovery from many forms of mental ill-health and associated broader difficulties, whether from stress, anxiety, eco-anxiety, eco-grief, panic attacks, anger, eco-anger, depression, psychosis, bipolar disorder, OCD, trauma or eating disorders. We offer one-to-one and group courses in mindful gardening, based on a blend of psycho-education for mental health using nature and gardening activities. We also offer landscape design services to develop gardens that are sensitive to a tender psyche, which can be developed in collaboration with those with mental health difficulties. We offer holding an initial zoom conversation to share your thinking about your project and discuss the next steps; to contact us visit the contact page.
