Ecotherapy

As any gardener will tell you, getting outdoors into the fresh air is great for your physical and mental wellbeing. We call this ecotherapy. 

It improves people’s physical and mental health by gently increasing their activity levels, working alongside others.

We have allotments in Hadleigh, Haverhill, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich which offer people the opportunity to learn about gardening and contribute to the creation of a thriving growing space that benefits everyone.
