Promoting mental wellbeing in teenagers
Set in a tranquil, walled garden, the Green Hub Project for Teens is a local community project aimed at promoting the wellbeing of teenagers’ mental health through social and therapeutic horticulture.
In partnership with the GPs, schools, youth agencies and parents, we enable teen referrals to enjoy nature, while gardening alongside and interacting with our skilled volunteers and other teenagers.
Our goal is to achieve positive, measurable outcomes for teens’ mental wellbeing, self-love, active lifestyles, social interaction and inclusion, as well as the development and application of a range of useful life skills.
Additionally, the Green Hub Project for Teens also runs wellbeing-focused talks and workshops to empower teens and to support their parents, thereby enabling us to reach a wider audience.
Over time, our vision is to provide a wider range of therapies and life-skills workshops, to establish a series of GHub@ garden spaces in other locations, and to help set-up and mentor similar charities using the Green Hub Project for Teens model as a blueprint.
