When I started I couldn’t move my hands or fingers, doing gardening gets your hands moving again. I think it’s one of the best ideas I’ve come across. Even if sitting in a wheelchair and can only use one hand, you still do something.

The guide shows how just 30 minutes of gardening a day can help recovery. It has a series of easy-to-follow, step-by-step progressive gardening activities, which are divided into levels 1, 2 and 3. Here are comments from people who have tried some of the Just 30! gardening activities:

"When I started I couldn’t move my hands or fingers, doing gardening gets your hands moving again" "I think it’s one of the best ideas I’ve come across. Even if sitting in a wheelchair and can only use one hand, you still do something. Tip out a packet of seeds in a pot!"

The activities will help build up strength and stamina, relax muscles, improve balance and movement, keep the heart healthy, burn calories and best of all make you feel good!
