We strongly believe that working with plants makes people happy. It takes your mind off of the days stresses and struggles and allows you to get your creative juices flowing while doing something fun and productive.
We hear this from guests at our workshops all of the time. Especially when we hold lunchtime office workshops, there is a palpable sense of calm that arrives once people get settled down and stuck in to making their own terrarium after a hard morning at work. Guests often describe the process of making their own terrarium as like meditation, a feeling that most gardeners will be able to relate to! Your focus slowly moves from the days struggles to a zen-like concentration on creating something beautiful.
When we heard about National Growing for Wellbeing Week by Life at No.27 we were immediately drawn to the idea of promoting gardening as a method of fostering wellbeing. It's lovely founder Annabelle Padwick, told us about her own journey with building an allotment and how it greatly helped her own personal wellbeing and inspired her to introduce this idea to others. We are completely on board!
National growing for wellbeing week runs from 3rd-9th June and we wanted to help promote this with an offer on our private workshop bookings. It's a great opportunity to hold a workshop at your workplace to help promote office wellbeing and help a good cause at the same time!
