Care farms and care gardens: horticulture as therapy in the UK
AbstractThis paper describes the use of Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) for vulnerable people in the UK. Around 20,000 clients attend STH â€˜projectsâ€™ each week. Projects provide activities for people with mental health problems, learning difficulties, physical disabilities, black and ethnic minorities and many other vulnerabilities. The benefits of attending projects include a structured routine and the opportunity for social contact. The natural, outdoor setting is particularly valued and may act as a restorative environment within the context of environmental psychology
