Digging into the Perceived Health Benefits of Community Gardening

Health Benefits of Community Gardening coverA Secondary Qualitative Analysis by Christina Katan In collaboration with Trellis
A community garden is a piece of land that is cultivated by members of a community. These gardens are gaining popularity in the UK, especially in areas of deprivation. With recent publications on the evidence of gardens and improved health in the UK, community gardening is gaining momentum as a feasible option to improve the health on a population level. With the rising prevalence of chronic disease, complex interventions like community gardening can holistically improve both physical and mental health. Recent evidence suggests that, while we understand that community gardens are good for one’s health for a number of reasons, the mechanisms that create change for these health impacts are poorly understood. Poor understanding of these links makes both the development and evaluation of community gardening difficult for researchers, service providers, and policy makers.
