HEALTH & WELLBEING
Here at Garsons we understand that Health and Wellbeing are intrinsically linked to gardening, eating well and being outdoors in the fresh air and nature.
GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY
Scientific studies have suggested that healthy bacteria that live in soil can increase serotonin levels through contact, which helps to reduce anxiety and strengthens our immune systems, providing a general sense of wellbeing. So go ahead and get your hands dirty! Read more from the Sustainable Soils Alliance.
Eating fresh can drastically improve your health and well-being, with our Farm Shop always having a range of healthy food options, integral to a balanced diet. Additionally, by picking your own at Garson Farm, Esher, you can benefit from exercise and fresh air, as well as the health-giving properties and satisfaction of eating the fresh produce.
Our extensive range of houseplants not only look good, but have a multitude of health benefits too, with studies showing improved productivity and influencing indoor air quality - they also make thoughtful gifts to show you care! For further in-depth information on how houseplants benefit health and wellbeing, take a look at the RHS.
PHYSICAL & MENTAL HEALTH
Gardening can benefit your physical and mental health in a range of ways. The physical act of gardening provides exercise, and in turn helps you to maintain flexibility. Keeping active can help improve circulation, and being outdoors whilst engaging in exercise is proven to help relieve stress.
