Following on from development work supported by Growing Durham at the community allotment in Willington, the County Durham 0-25 Growing Healthy Youth Practitioner Team of the Harrogate and District NHS Trust are developing more allotment projects across the county to support young people to promote the beneficial and positive impact that gardening can have on their lives.   With increasing scientific evidence highlighting the importance of gardening benefiting our physical, mental, and social wellbeing, the team will be working with young people to help improve their confidence, activity levels, mental wellbeing, and social interaction.  For further information please contact Sue Duggan, Community Anchor – 07392 194033.
