National Growing for Wellbeing Week

National Growing for Wellbeing Week is a celebration of the magic that growing your own produce can do for your wellbeing, both physically and mentally.

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience mental ill health each year. There is strong evidence highlighting the health benefits of gardening and GYO in particular, including improved confidence, communication, concentration and ultimately self-belief.

Gardening improves mental health, enables better physical health, provides an opportunity to connect with others, acquire new skills and enjoy the great outdoors.

After all, It’s not what you grow, it’s how YOU grow.

Garden Centres and Gardening Brands will be running one-off events, workshops and offering exclusive discounts, up and down the country.

Further details on the exact garden centres and brands, including how to book your place and obtain exclusive offers will shared over the coming months in 2019.

We would love you to get involved by sharing your favourite gardening photos, stories and thoughts throughout the week across social media, tagging @GYOWellbeingWk and using the hashtag #GYOforWellbeing.
