Around the world there is a growing social movement that’s using nature to heal. Gardening as therapy, alternatively known as ‘social gardening and therapeutic horticulture' is a way of providing regular interaction with nature that both stimulates the mind as much as it relaxes it. From helping people return to their old lives after an accident or health issue, to staying physically and mentally active in aged care settings, to supporting mental disabilities or the homeless – gardening is much more than a way to simply pass the time. It can give people a sense of purpose and pride, helping to improve their lives. This was the topic of discussion at a recent session of Farm Chats, hosted by @PocketCityFarms where a panel of horticulturalists, researchers and community workers shared both their experience and expertise on this growing social movement. We put together a wrap up of the conversation with @the_veggie_lady @pettitt_phil @streetgrowth @warrah_society and Royal Rehab, so you can take a read. Now live on PLB. 🌿 📸 @milkwood_permaculture
