People in Bath and North East Somerset offered opportunity to boost wellbeing and learn more about gardening

A local Voluntary Social Enterprise and Community sector organisation is offering people in the Bath and North East Somerset area a chance to learn more about gardening in a special six week beginners course.

The new course, which is operated by Bath Mind, runs for the next six weeks at Monksdale Road Allotments, Bath, BA2 2JD

The course is for anyone living in Bath & North East Somerset who is interested in learning basic gardening skills, and benefiting their wellbeing through gardening activities. It covers everything a beginner would need to know about gardening from seed sowing to harvesting flowers and takes place in a safe and supportive space.

The course is one of a number run by Bath Mind aimed at helping to look after the wellbeing of local people through group activities such as gardening, photography, exercise, writing and other activities.

Kate Morton, Chief Executive of Bath Mind said

“We know that gardening can be really beneficial for our mental health and wellbeing and spending time outdoors can really help to reduce depression, anxiety and stress. “Our gardening course offers people a chance to get outside this spring in a safe and supportive space and is one of a number of courses currently on offer through Bath Mind aimed at helping to support the health and wellbeing of local people.
