Gardening to improve mental health

The Brecon Community Garden is a joint venture between mirus, the St John’s Centre in Brecon and volunteers from the local community.

 

Several people supported by mirus regularly volunteer to help out at the garden. They have found that being outside is a great way to boost their mental health and wellbeing.

One volunteer from the local community makes use of the foodbank, which is also provided by St John’s. He said that volunteering in the garden is his small way of “giving back” to the community.

 

The garden has become increasingly popular, and it has now become a great focal point of the community. It has attracted more volunteers, who have joined as a way to get to know their neighbours, including a Ukrainian family who have recently moved to the area.

Everyone is welcome to visit the garden at any time, and people who drop by are guaranteed a warm welcome. Volunteering takes place on Tuesday afternoons.
