That a walk in beautiful, natural surroundings might be good for our well-being seems so obvious as to hardly be worth mentioning. But, when the world is rapidly becoming urbanised, the question of why a walk in the garden is better than a walk on a treadmill becomes urgent.

This exhibition is a collaboration between the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and the Project Soothe team at the University of Edinburgh. Project Soothe’s mission is to develop a bank of soothing photographs that can be shared with others to improve mental health and wellbeing. The Botanics has provided a soothing environment to visitors for over ten generations. We hope that by exploring and explaining what is soothing about nature we will find new ways to conserve both the world of plants and people’s health.

The exhibition is an opportunity to learn more about Project Soothe and how to participate as well as collaborate in mapping the more soothing areas of the garden.

The Project Soothe Exhibition has been very popular and so we have extended it to Wednesday 4th October 2017
