Helmsley Walled Garden in North Yorkshire is a lovely place to visit (with a smashing cafe) and is a charity providing Horticultural Therapy. This is such a wonderful cause making a huge difference to people's lives.
I recently read a doctoral thesis about three groups of pensioners. One group did their usual thing, the second formed a social club and the third formed a gardening club. As far as I remember the gardening group were the happiest, even if they were dragged unwillingly to the allotment, once there they were so glad they'd turned up.
