Seed of Hope
Seed of Hope is a social and therapeutic horticulture group for people with mental health problems, and we also run a group for people with dementia and their carers.
We use these elements intrinsic to gardening to help people change:
- Being outdoors-in nature with increased light levels.
- Gentle exercise.
- Working as a team to shared goals.
- Nurturing living things.
The changes that these elements can help bring about are:
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced depression
- Improved feelings of well being
- Reduced Stress
- Better Physical Health
- Improved diet
- Increase in attention
- Improved concentration
- Weight loss
- Less social isolation
We are based in the Walled Gardens of Cannington. Which is part of Bridgwater College, and participants also have an opportunity to gain a Level 1 qualification in Practical Horticulture Skills if they want to.
