Green Therapy: Why Gardening is Kind to your Mind

It's great that more and more doctors are prescribing non-clinical tactics to help the mind. Green therapy is one of those. Whether you struggle with mental health issues or the stresses and strains of daily life, we've put together a guide on how and why green therapy is kind to your mind.

  • Activities taking place in a green environment
  • Mindfulness in the natural world
