About the Project
There is a well-established body of evidence that shows that spending time hands-on with plants and animals can make a noticeable difference to your well-being. Benefits include increased self-esteem, improved social interaction and preventing deterioration in many conditions. As a Care Farm involved with Dementia Adventure, the project will be promoted to adults who would benefit from it.
