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 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.

Martineau Gardens is a beautiful community garden and a charity, located two miles from Birmingham City Centre. An oasis for wildlife, a haven of tranquility or simply a great destination for an outdoor adventure, there are two and a half acres of organically managed landscape for you to explore.
