There has been much research published on the health and wellbeing benefits of green care interventions such as care farming.
Care farming combines contact and connection with nature, social interaction and farm-related activity. All these things are beneficial for general health and wellbeing in themselves.
There is also a benefit from the combination of these elements together. Where people have a defined need, this combination of benefits can create a complex intervention. These interconnected physical health and mental wellbeing benefits can help many different people.
