Gardening in the Workplace
Exposure to green spaces is proven to have positive impacts upon our mental and physical health. Gardening can provide physical, physiological and social benefits in a restorative environment, while also providing a sense of meaningful occupation and well-being.
These benefits can be brought into our everyday workplace by providing green spaces and the encouraging the act of gardening – however big or small. The Salad Project can help your workplace by providing advice along with fun and interactive workshops to employees on how to grow their own.
The Salad Project can provide interactive workshops to employees. Topics which can be covered in a workshop include the following;
Aspects to consider when choosing a location i.e. space and light;
What's best to grow for the location, where to start and how;
The importance of healthy soil;
Pests and diseases;
Urban growing ideas for small spaces;
All workshops include a practical seed sowing session with materials provided (seeds, pots, compost); and time for Q&As.
All workshops are adaptable to time and level of gardening experience. Workshops can range from 1hr to 2hrs, or half days depending on which best suits the client’s workplace.
