Planting new growth for health and wellbeing

The beginning of life

Today, in our work session, we planted new trees in our woodland around the heather banking.

We planted hazel, crab apple, hawthorn and dog rose.

But did you know that trees clean our air, purify our soil and are the nurturing home to rare species that live there.  But there are also other tangible health benefits for being in the forests and woods too.

The scientifically proven benefits include boosted immune system, reduced blood pressure, reduced stress, increased ability to focus, accelerated recovery from surgery or illness, increased energy level and improved sleep are just some of the known benefits.

It’s also a place to recover the mind and soul, to contemplate and just sit a while.
