Gardening for health and wellbeing is at the core of what we do here at Helmsley Walled Garden. Since its inception over 25 years ago, the garden has looked to benefit both its local community and the thousands of visitors that come to this beautiful garden every year.
As part of its purpose, the garden provides therapeutic horticulture opportunities: the interaction of individuals with plants and gardening in a secure and supportive environment to enhance their own physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Not only does Helmsley Walled Garden benefit around 60 volunteers every single week, it’s a garden designed to directly benefit its visitors through its relaxed and accessible layout. There are calming spaces within the garden with lots of open lawns and plenty of areas for sitting and taking in the view.
The design of Helmsley Walled Garden encourages contemplation of nature, relaxation and rests the mind, so that everyone who works in or visits the garden reaps the benefits of this beautiful space.
It currently costs £11,000 a month to keep the garden running. Every donation helps us secure the future of the garden. If you would like to support us please click on the button below to make a donation.
