GARDEN RELEAF DAY MARCH 19 GET INVOLVED!
Gardens and gardening and interactions with plants and green spaces provide therapeutic and physical benefits to both physical and mental health. Recent health studies in the UK are encouraging GP’s to prescribe gardening and gardens as support to traditional clinical referrals to help alleviate health symptoms. Quantitative studies have shown significant reductions in symptoms of depression and anxiety following gardening based interventions.
We encourage you to GET INVOLVED with Garden Releaf; which is celebrating National Blueberry Day March 19 and head into your nearest participating Garden Centre for ideas and inspiration on how you, your family or your loved ones can get involved with gardens and gardening. The day will also be used to raise funds to support the work of beyondblue . Go to www. gardenreleafaustralia.com. au to find your nearest participating store.
