Martineau Gardens is a beautiful therapeutic community garden and a charity, located two miles from Birmingham City Centre.
An oasis for wildlife, a haven of tranquillity, a destination for an outdoor escape, set within two and a half acres of the organically managed landscape for people to explore.
What is a Community Garden?
Find out why Community Gardens are good for us by watching this video.
NHS Midlands and East commissioned Martineau Gardens to report how the community garden is a model for improving public health and resilience in Birmingham, with a particular focus on the impact of the garden and gardening on the mental health and well being of the people of Birmingham. The film documents the activities of Martineau Gardens (and other urban growing projects) with evidence from staff, volunteers and visitors who use the Gardens.
