Gardening for Health 

We build gardens in GP surgeries and NHS hospitals so everyone who wishes to learn how to grow food can do so in a safe, secure and supported environment.

Our GP garden communities provide a space and a reason for people to socialise, learn and grow food together. People who participate are improving their own health and wellbeing.

This results in people feeling less isolated and better in themselves and, as GPs are now reporting, they don't require so many appointments.

  • Who can the GP Food Co-op help?

    “As a person with depression and anxiety problems, I find the project a good way to meet people and combat a sense of isolation I often feel. It has also motivated me to utilise my balcony space to grow food and has also reignited my love of cooking....”
