Garden for good health
Gardening is good for our mental health. There is increasing evidence that time spent in a green environment can reduce stress, improve our mood and our wellbeing. Gardening is not only relaxing, it can also boost confidence and self-esteem, creating a real sense of achievement.
It is these qualities that make it such an important activity for our clients. In addition to learning disabilities, they have other complex and challenging needs, including autism. Having full use of a garden gives our clients a safe place in which to develop new skills, relax, and to have fun. The physical activity of gardening offers a sustainable and social interest that is of great benefit to both the physical and mental health of our clients.
Our aim is to support our clients to live as independent and fulfilling a life as possible. The enjoyment of gardening and having easy access to an open, green space makes a material difference to the everyday lives of our clients.
We rely on the generosity of our supporters to help fund these activities. If you would like to donate, please visit: https://www.fieldlane.org.uk/donate
