WHAT IS GREEN CARE?

We define ‘Green Care’ as any activity or intervention that uses nature and experiencing nature as ways of boosting mental and physical health. There is a growing body of evidence that connecting with nature- plants, trees, animals, the open air- all help to make us healthier (see the Research page for more details). Green Care includes a wide range of activities (see the diagram below) and has the power to maintain or develop health, prevent illness and aid recovery.
