Why gardening is good for the soul

Yesterday’s Garden to Wellbeing session proved that just an hour outside doing a simple activity can bring smiles all round. Despite the cold (you can feel that snow is on its way), Chris was able to sow some sunflower seeds for his wellbeing garden which he planned out last year.

Sowing seeds is more than just a horticulture task, a job to get done. It represents hope, transition and new beginnings. And it brings Chris some independence in deciding how he wants to develop his own growing space. Chris (and his family) will be nurturing the seeds until our next session where we’ll be making a start on the raised beds.
