Why growing your own is beneficial to your wellbeing!

We all know the main benefit of growing your own produce in your garden - getting lovely, fresh food straight to your table. But have you ever considered the other positives for your physical and mental wellbeing?

It's National Growing for Wellbeing Week, and some of the things you can improve from gardening and growing your own include: 

  • Confidence.
  • Communication.
  • Concentration.
  • Self-belief.

Spending time in the garden is also great for you physically - the manual labour involved burns calories and strengthens your heart!

We firmly believe that home-grown is best, so we teamed up with local, organic farmers to provide us with our bones and vegetables. Since we can track our ingredients from the source, we can be sure our broths are delicious, rich and nutritious. 

Our focus is also on mindfulness and mental wellbeing, so the wellness plans we created earlier this year, which are available with any purchase, continues with the positives gained from growing and gardening. Seeing your seeds sprout into beautiful flowers is definitely something to write about in your gratitude diary.

And with summer approaching and the possibility of normality returning, it will be beneficial for people of all ages to have a break from the hustle and bustle to focus on their own little world. 

The best things you can grow in your own garden during June are:

  • Beetroot.
  • Peas
  • Radishes.
  • Runner beans.
  • Salad leaves. 
  • Spring onions.

Flowers that can be grown at this time of year include begonias, geraniums, petunias and sweet peas.

When you’re able to harvest your goodies, be sure to try out a bone broth recipe with them, such as our pea, mint and spring onion soup! Other meal ideas can be found in our free wellness plan.
