Garden visiting is therapeutic!

more than just scenic

From wandering around a peaceful garden and catching up with a friend over a slice of cake, to reconnecting with nature and finding inspiration – garden visiting offers the perfect opportunity to escape from a busy life. Spending an hour or two wandering around a truly beautiful meditative garden that has been lovingly cultivated by its owners is incredibly restorative and rivals any other act of self-care that is commonly promoted.

In June 2018, Solid Air Sculpture had the opportunity of a guest appearance as part of an Open Arts & Crafts Garden charity event in seafront home in Whitstable, Kent. The NGS – National Open Garden Scheme isn’t just about opening beautiful gardens for charity – they are passionate about it’s physical and mental health benefits. Visiting a National Garden Scheme garden is a wonderful thing when looking to de-stress.

We introduced a selection of unique crystal and Orgonite designs to the over 800 people who came and experienced first hand how gardens can positively impact people’s health & wellbeing. The work was extremely well received and showed the joy that gardening can provide for people.

85% say garden visiting is good for the soul!

Research conducted by the National Garden Scheme has revealed that visiting a garden has a….

  • positive impact on their mental wellbeing
  • people feel happier after visiting than before
  • experience a visit as calming
  • see it as enjoyable way to spend time with loved ones
  • it aids creativity and gives you that feel-good factor 
  •   it helps you learn about plants and flowers

 

With tactile crystal pyramids and Orgonites around you, who focus the Earth’s magnetism and magnify energy, you can generate negative ions and harmonize your garden, as well as repair the cells of any living organisms. By using these metaphysical tools, you can support people’s wellbeing while simultaneously contributing to lush and healthy plant growth.

In 2018 The National Garden Scheme gave £296,000 of the total £3.1 million charitable donations to gardens and health-related projects, such as sensory gardens for adults with disabilities, or  therapeutic gardens in community centres and specialist NHS cancer hospitals.

Solid Air Sculpture is currently working on their own Open Garden, and a new organic range of crystal sculptures, which will be displayed in an exhibition on Sunday, 19th May 2019.

It is with great pleasure that I can announce a new collaboration working with the online sculpture gallery https://www.artparks.co.uk. This new venture started in May 2018 and I am very excited to be part of it. The Ethos of ArtParks is to create a chance for a wider cross section of quality sculptures, to be exposed to as many interested people as possible, in suitable surroundings. They have sculptures for the garden, sculpture for the Town Square, sculpture for the office, sculpture for healing help in the hospital, sculpture for schools, commemorative sculpture, sculpture for the interior and sculpture for architectural embellishment. The Art Park in the grounds of Sausmarez Manor on Guernsey puts on annual exhibitions and is also part of the National Sculpture Festival, which takes place there and at one, or two other venues in Britain.
