Experts in the UK have found that spending time in an allottment just once a week can produce significant benefits, helping to increase a person's self-esteem, ease depression, and calm anger.
In a collaborative effort, researchers from Essex and Westminster universities interviewed 269 people, in which half of them were gardeners. The respondents who were familiar with gardening were asked about how they feel before and after working in an allotment.
