There is a large and growing evidence-base demonstrating the positive therapeutic effects of nature, landscapes and gardening on our health. Grow Places harnesses these therapeutic powers to improve individuals' physical and mental health, while promoting social inclusion and helping to design, construct and maintain private, care home, hospital and community gardens.
Our social mission:
- To help more people enjoy the social and health benefits of gardening.
- To encourage people to get out into nature more.
- To offer a friendly, welcoming and fun environment.
- To support community gardening through a range of means.
- To identify and support pathways to volunteering and employment in landscape design, gardening and horticulture.
