Health Benefits

The name Root ‘n’ Fruit relates to the produce that is being grown and supplied, but it also refers to our objective to support healthy living and promote exercise, enabling the benefits that these can bring to the local community.

A number of studies have specifically examined links between improved human health and exposure to “nature” in urban settings, confirming that green exercise can lead to positive short-term, and long-term, health outcomes.

Additionally, gardening promotes increased community cohesion and is accessible regardless of age, income, education and ethnic background.
