National Survey …

… of Gardening and Horticulture-related Activities for Health and Well-being

The Green Care Coalition, with the support of Natural England, are working to promote the use of gardening and horticulture activities to improve health and well-being, so that they become more widely understood and used.

With the help of the Coalition partners and practitioners in the sector, Thrive ran a survey to build an up to date picture of the national availability, scale and scope of nature-based health and well-being services and, in particular, the use of gardening and horticulture.

The final report is now available and can be found here.

If you wish to use the findings from this survey please acknowledge the role of the Green Care Coalition and reference the report as:
