CWIB are delighted to be associated with locally based charity Lindengate.
Lindengate is a mental health charity that offers specialised gardening activities to help those with mental health needs in their continuing recovery. Their services, known as Social & Therapeutic Horticulture, use the healing power of nature and the outdoors to improve mental wellbeing, boost self-esteem and social inclusion and encourage long-term recovery.
Social and Therapeutic Horticulture is recognised to be beneficial for a wide range of mental health needs including anxiety, depression, loneliness as well as for people with autism (ASD), dementia and head injury. The charity operates from a 5-acre site in Wendover Bucks .
They offer gardening, conservation, horticulture, craft and construction activities that enable users to spend time in a managed and calm environment, either singly or in small groups, reducing their isolation and working towards their recovery.
Lindengate Mental Health Charity will be supporting Chiltern Women in Business to build on their Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR), by offering corporate volunteering days, on their 5-acre site in Wendover.
