Connection to nature research is about our attitude towards the natural world.

So far, research has shown a clear link between connection to nature and a person's wellbeing. People who feel a stronger sense of connection are more likely to feel happy and fulfilled. Studies show us that a lack of connection to nature, or ‘nature deprivation’ may have a negative effect on health and wellbeing.

Care farms provide many opportunities for people to connect with nature. Farming activities that deepen a sense of nature connection could have long-term benefits for both service user wellbeing and the wider natural environment.
