Who knew that AXA Insurance have a Stress Index! It says that 41% of people who do gardening for only 2 hours a week report that it improved their physical health, making it one of the best ways to deal with stress. So it's important to get those therapeutic effects all year round. We find lots to do in our Community Garden Clubs for people with dementia during bad weather, sowing and growing plants inside the cosy yurt or garden shed, and even the snow didn't stop us! Now spring is here we will be outdoors whenever we can, but with shelter as back-up whenever it's needed.
