Imagine opening your eyes to every colour, vibrant, true and bold...your mind trying to take in the bluest blues, reddest reds, greenest greens and the yellowest yellow with one glance of your head sweeping right to left. Add in the delightful smells that waft through the summer air, the sound of birds and the tinkling of wind chimes and you will begin to understand that EDEN gardens is truly a delightful mix of fragrance that is brought alive by the sounds of nature and enhanced with colours that only Mother Nature herself can create.
Welcome...you have just entered EDEN GARDENS...your own little paradise.
So whether its planting, growing or just relaxing, we are want to give the community years of enjoyment and health benefits, including improved access to food, improved nutrition, increased physical activity and improved mental health as well as promote social health in our community .
In our busy modern lives, it can be hard to fit in time to spend outdoors enjoying nature. For those of us who live in the city, this can be even more of a challenge. Urban gardening communities have started to spring up all over cities in the UK in answer to this problem, giving communities a place to come together and grow things outdoors.
Community gardens provide fresh food for individuals and families that would otherwise struggle to afford a variety of fresh produce in their diet. Plus, eating locally grown fruit and veg helps expose you to pollens that cause allergies, reducing hay fever symptoms! It’s been said time and time again that gardening brings with it some tangible health benefits: all that digging and lifting is actually a good source of exercise. Spending some time outdoors helps you get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life – and is a great way of releasing feel-good endorphins, and reduces stress.
One of the best things about a community garden is the way it can bring you together to socialise with people in your community. In the city, many people struggle to feel connected to their neighbours and can even become very lonely. A community garden lets you (literally) get your hands dirty with your neighbours. You bring the teabags, get someone else to bring the custard creams, and get to know people in your area!
At Our House Walton Community Hub, we believe there’s nothing more unstoppable than when people come together.
