Free online micro-gardening workshops to boost wellbeing

Free online micro-gardening workshops to boost wellbeing
Norfolk and Waveney Mind is offering free ‘micro-gardening’ starter kits and online workshops to help people enjoy the wellbeing benefits of gardening even if they don’t have much outdoor space.
 
The ‘Seed To Feed’ virtual workshops will run every Tuesday from 11.30am to 12.30pm, from 9th February to 16th March.
 
They will include sessions on micro-salads, sprouting seeds, transplanting seedlings, and herb cuttings.
 
Great Yarmouth residents can apply for free starter kits of salads and herbs that can be grown in small pots on a windowsill at home.
 
Norfolk and Waveney Mind’s Horticultural Projects Manager Caroline Fernandez will offer live support over Zoom with advice on how to ‘sow and grow’.
 
She said: “Gardening is incredibly beneficial for our mental health – it has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, it gives us a sense of achievement, and it helps us feel more connected to nature and our community.”

Thanks to the Pears Foundation Department for Media, Culture and Sport Emergency Fund.
