National Garden RELEAF weekend – 7/8 March to raise funds for Beyond Blue

19 February 2015

Over one hundred Independent Garden Centres and nursery suppliers around Australia will be raising awareness of depression and anxiety, and money for Beyond Blue, on garden RELEAF weekend on March 7th and 8th.

Getting out in the garden and open green spaces is not only good for your physical health, but your mental health and wellbeing as well.

Beyond Blue Chairman Jeff Kennett, and Board Director and Better Homes and Gardens host, Johanna Griggs are both Ambassadors for the weekend event and say that there are wonderful health benefits and satisfaction to be derived from gardening.

Mr Kennett has revealed his own garden, and spoken with Ms Griggs about how gardening helps him maintain his mental health, on Better Homes and Gardens on March 6. The segment will be viewable online here.
