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.
