Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 : Growing Corner 12-05-2021

Event | Other

The theme for this year's Mental Health Awareness Week is 'Nature and the Environment'. 

During lockdown many of us have found solace in green spaces, home growing (no matter how small the space) and rebuilding our connection with the natural environment. Here are a whole host of resources that focus on growing food, saving seed and foraging that are perfect for the novice gardener. No matter how small your space, you can begin your journey to growing food. If you have a windowsill try starting with herbs, salad leaves or chilli plants.

Hackney Herbal set out on a mission to show people how to incorporate herbs into their lifestyles, for health and improved wellbeing. The idea came from a desire to create more value out of the herbs that were being grown in private, public and community gardens. You can find more information about their workshops here.
