Growing plants at Mares Farm, Old Amersham, Bucks Gardening for many of us is a therapeutic pastime. Being outdoors and growing and nurturing plants often brings a sense of calm and satisfaction.
 
Academic research is showing that there are wider benefits too.  A study at Loughborough University found that gardening can have a positive impact on your coordination, your communication and your social skills.  If you have a mental health problem, learning difficulties or a physical disability, this is a great way to improve.
 
The horticultural activities provided at Mares give you the opportunity to grow flowers and vegetables.  There are daily tasks that need doing such as digging, planting, watering, harvesting and weeding.
 
Or you may prefer a more constructive task such as building a raised bed or a garden feature, or maintaining the equipment or pathways.
 
So there is something to suit everyone and there is a daily choice of tasks depending on how you feel.
