Healthy Mind Healthy Planet
The Lidl sponsored garden, designed with sustainability in mind, demonstrates how mental wellbeing can be improved by stepping outside into nature no matter how big or small the green space.
Jigsaw, the national centre for youth mental health and Lidl’s official charity partner, recommends five key actions that we can all do every day to boost our wellbeing and support our mental health; Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give.
Lidl's garden provides simple ideas to support each of these actions, helping people get their five-a-day for mental health.
Connect with close ones and chat outside during the warm summer evenings in the seating area, be active with outdoor yoga and gardening, take notice of the world passing by in the secluded mindfulness corner, learn something new by tending to a herb, medicinal plants and fruit patch and give back by supporting the environment with pollinator friendly plants and insect hotels.
