St Andrews Express Group

2016 Certificate Level 5 - Outstanding

Part of the Express Group (Fife) which enables people with mental health problems to meet, cope and recover. Aided by ‘St Andrews in Bloom’, the group has set up a therapeutic gardening project where members can take an active role in planting and tending their own vegetable plot and enjoy exercise and social interaction. Members can pick and eat the fresh produce, enhancing their mental and physical health and well-being. The group has built and planted several 'edible planters' containing vegetables and herbs, which are sited in public places around St Andrews for the local community to enjoy.
