Gardening

The Trusted Garden Program is a horticultural therapy program for participants of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Gardening is a fun and healthy pursuit that has many benefits. Gardening activities are used to improve the physical, mental and social health of participants.

NDIS funding is a requirement to join this program. Gardening is a great way to improve your overall fitness without you even being aware of it. It can increase muscle strength, your range of movement and improve fine motor skills. Learning how to grow your food provides an opportunity to learn more about healthy eating and nutrition. If you have grown it you are more likely to try eating it. Learning how to be a successful gardener requires you to learn about nature and the environment around you.

Experiences include:

  • Improved health and wellbeing
  • Make new social connections in a supportive setting
  • Gardening skills
  • Connecting with nature
  • Independence
  • Creativity
  • Making and growing things
