Bridgend Allotment has an allotment for health project

The project is seeking to promote an holistic approach to health – encouraging people into physical activity, healthy eating, being outdoors and mixing with others through the practical and companiable work involved in creating a garden. Older people escape the loneliness of social isolation and young people and children find role models and surrogate grandparents, whilst those lacking confidence through illness perhaps regain their esteem and a sense of well-being.

They’re in Edinburgh if you want to get involved!
