Longstock Park Nursery Celebrates : The Opening of the Garden for Mind!

04 Jul 2024

We're delighted to announce the opening of the Garden for Mind Andover on Thursday 11th July 2024! This exciting new initiative has created a beautiful garden space to inspire, educate and support the work of Andover Mind. It’s located at Longstock Park Nursery on the Leckford Estate in Hampshire, in an area that was previously unused and was donated by the Estate.

A Sanctuary for Wellbeing

The Garden for Mind Andover has been created as a sanctuary for mental health and overall well-being. This serene and tranquil space will enable Andover Mind to conduct programmes and activities that benefit their service users. From gardening therapy to mindfulness sessions and tranquil contemplation spots, the garden serves as a nurturing setting to enhance mental wellness.

A Valuable Asset for the Community

The Garden for Mind Andover isn't just for service users – it's a valuable asset for the entire community! Open during Longstock Park Nursery's regular hours, the garden offers a space for everyone to connect with nature, find peace and tranquillity and enjoy the outdoors.

Collaboration and Growth

The creation of the Garden for Mind Andover wouldn't have been possible without the dedication and support of countless volunteers, sponsors and supporters. Andover Mind is incredibly grateful to all the support and help they have received and will continue to offer opportunities for volunteers to support the project by helping with ongoing maintenance. 

Visit and Explore the Garden

We encourage you to visit Longstock Park Nursery and explore the Garden for Mind. Experience the beauty and serenity of this thoughtfully designed space and learn more about how it will support mental health in our community.

You can explore the Garden for Mind during Longstock Park Nursery’s opening times. Following the Mind Garden's official opening in July, the garden will be open to the public in August.
