Lindengate, Mental Health Charity

Award winning charity offering specialised gardening activities to help those with mental health needs in their continuing recovery.

A bit about us

Our stunning acre garden site in Wendover, offers a wide range of gardening/horticulture activities so that service users can spend time in a managed and calm and safe environment, either singly or in small groups, working towards recovery.

The name Lindengate comes from mixing the Old English name for a Lime tree – ‘Linden’, known for its recuperative and stress-relieving properties and the ‘Gate’, symbolising passing through on the journey to recovery.

What We Do

The specialist services provided by Lindengate are known as Social & Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) and is a successful method to promote health and wellbeing, facilitate social inclusion and offer participants opportunities that can help them gain in self-confidence and self-esteem. By getting people out of their homes and mixing with others in an outdoor, fresh-air environment it is a catalyst to break down their social isolation and encourages the recovery process.

STH is recognized to be beneficial for a wide range of mental health needs including anxiety, depression, loneliness, autism (ASD), dementia and head injury. STH helps to promote: 

  • increased mental wellbeing
  • reduction in depression, anxiety and stress symptoms
  • improvement in dementia-related symptoms
  • improved self-esteem, confidence and mood
  • increased attentional capacity and cognition
  • improved happiness, quality of life and a sense of peace
  • increased social contact, inclusion and a sense of belonging
  • increase in work skills, meaningful activity and personal achievement
