The root of happiness? Sow the City delivered a variety of workshops from growing and cooking aubergines, to building a wormery and creating natural art. Participants and their families reported improvements in wellbeing from attending sessions. The project harnessed the therapeutic benefits of the natural environment as well as showing people how to grow their own healthy free food, strengthening community bonds, and providing useful life skills. There have been improvements to café and hospital sites with staff commenting on benefiting staff working environments. The project was commissioned for both a second and third year (2018-19 and 2019-20) by Heywood. Rochdale and Middleton CCG delivered in partnership with Pennine Care NHS Trust and Link 4 Life.
