The Research

Research shows that gardening can change the way you feel, both about yourself and the world around you.

Gardening improves self esteem and restores confidence. After suffering a disappointment or loss, gardening puts the cycle of life and death in its proper perspective.

At the Power Plant Project we offer support to those who need it; to empower people to be involved in their own recovery and healing; and help them through specific periods of difficulty or adjustment. 

Whether you are suffering from mental or physical illness or disability, we will provide a program of activity using gardening to help you with your recovery.
