The public health benefits of gardening (report)

Gardens and health. Implications for policy and practice

This independent report by The King's Fund has three aims:
    1) to collate and summarise the evidence on the impact of gardens on wellbeing
    2) to demonstrate the important place gardening interventions have in the wider health and care system
    3) to make the case for the further integration of gardens and health into mainstream health policy and practice.
The report includes a ‘menu’ of recommendations that aims to encourage the NHS, government departments, national bodies, local government, health and wellbeing boards and clinical commissioning groups to make more of the diverse health benefits of gardening.
