Therapeutic Gardening

At Winterslow Primary School we put the fantastic learning from Sosna (Slovakia) in place straight away by offering gardening as part of our wellbeing week. Many studies have been made on how gardening can positively influence the physical and mental wellbeing of gardeners. The development of outdoor hobbies and interacting with nature can only enhance our lives and our children loved it! Not only did our children respond really well to the opportunity to get covered in soil many have since accessed the space afterwards as a calm area to sit and reflect.
