Healthy Gardening Programmes like the one here at Blissberry Social Farm can provide a variety of social and nutritional benefits to communities.
Participants at this years Healthy Gardening Programme “Seed to Plate” have found access to green spaces such as our vegetable plots and the countryside had lowered their levels of stress and turned a higher-level of work and life satisfaction.
Activity in the presence of nature on the working farm leads to mental and physical health improvements.
Some of the substantial mental health challenges facing society and physical challenges arising from modern diets and sedentary lifestyles (such as the alarming growth in obesity) could be addressed by increased forms of activity in natural places.
@Blissberryfarm we believe that these kinds of comparisons are important for health service policymakers when trying to decide how to invest scarce financial resources defiantly outdoors in a green environment a win win for all.
