Dig it

‘Dig it’ is a project run by the Trust’s health improvement service in Calderdale. It utilises two of the Trust’s existing allotment plots in Halifax to engage people with gardening in order to maintain good physical health and mental wellbeing.

The health benefits of gardening are widely documented and ‘Dig it’ was developed to help people who may find exercise classes or gyms unsuitable or unappealing, but who would still like to carry out some level of physical activity.

The  ‘Dig it’ taster sessions aim to introduce people to the various health benefits of gardening and growing and are led by a health improvement practitioner with a specialism in gardening for health. The sessions link to wider Trust gardening and allotment initiatives, allowing people to take their interest forward.

The scheme also offers people who show a dedication and commitment to allotment growing the chance to tend to their own plot of land for a small cost.
