Leading UK garden centre Dobbies is on a quest to help local community groups revamp their outdoor space by creating beautiful welltality gardens up and down the country.

The garden expert, which has a branch in Midlothian, hopes to encourage Brits to take better care of their health and wellbeing by using their outdoor space.

This year, welltality - the notion of putting personal health first - has extended far beyond the health and food industry, and is now becoming increasingly popular within the garden. Consumers are already embracing welltality at home by growing their own food and spending more time outdoors to relax and lift their mood.

Dobbies is keen to help local community groups, which have an outdoor space that needs some TLC, design and construct their very own welltality garden.

Are you a youth group looking for an exciting new hands-on project? Or perhaps you’re a mental health group looking to create a tranquil space to spend time in? Whatever your cause, Dobbies is eager to help. The space will be well planned to suit the needs of the project, keeping personal wellbeing at the heart of the design. The secluded haven will act as an ideal space to relax and unwind and help to promote feelings of health and happiness.

Jayne Kirpatrick, Community Champion at Dobbies Midlothian, said: “Dobbies has a strong commitment to the local community and we are always on the look-out for ways to give back to those around us. The welltality garden is a fantastic opportunity for local groups and we are extremely excited at the prospect of creating a new outdoor sanctuary in Midlothian.”

An application form is available on the Help Your Community Grow page within the Dobbies website: www.dobbies.com/about-dobbies/dobbies-in-the-community/helping-your-community-grow.
