Mind in Kingston runs a Community Allotment in Tolworth, which offers local people with mental health issues the opportunity to grow fruit and vegetables and learn more about healthy eating.
Gardening and being outdoors are proven to help people with mental health issues and improve mood, lessen anxiety and help people to relax.
The project is open to anyone with a mental health condition or issue, who will benefit from ecotherapy and is interested in learning about growing and tending plants, different varieties of fruit and vegetables and what to do with them.
The allotment will be closed over the winter period 2021-2022, and reopen in early spring 2022.
How can I join?
If you would like to take part and do some relaxing gardening on our allotment, please contact the office for further information. No referral is required.
