Healthcare professionals

Growing Health has been identifying useful examples and evidence relating to the health and wellbeing benefits of food growing. 

There are many examples of projects in local communities, as well as others that target particular groups such as people with mental health problems, physical impairments, people with long term conditions, learning difficulties or in recovery and rehabilitation. These are used in a range of therapeutic and community settings.
