23rd August 2019 – We’ve just embarked on a small fund-raising campaign, to purchase the equipment needed to build an indoor garden inside the reception area of our wellbeing centre on Newport High Street.
What is an indoor garden? It’s an energy efficient LED grow light, that’s suspended from the ceiling above a grow-box, which sits upon a drip-tray. The garden would also include tools, seeds, compost, plant nutrients, sand, pebbles, pots, and a propagator to germinate seeds.
Why are we building an indoor garden? Contact with nature is know to have very positive health benefits, but unfortunately neither of our two wellbeing centres have access to a garden or patio area, so we thought we’d do the next best thing and create a little garden inside.
