Raise £12,000 for sensory gardens and horticulture at Sowenna to support young people with severe mental health illness to get better

Being surrounded by nature has proven to improve mental wellbeing.

‘By watching things grow, you realise that it isn’t always the fault of the plant if things don’t work – it’s about the seasons and the weather. It’s the same with mental health issues: it’s not always your fault.’

Being surrounded by nature has proven to improve mental wellbeing. That’s why at Sowenna, we are raising funds for therapeutic gardens. Our Crowdfunder project ‘Grow Outdoors’ aims to raise £12,000 to go towards raised beds that will be part of a young person’s therapeutic journey whilst they stay at Sowenna. It will enable young people to plant, nurture and sow herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables.
