MIT students create a garden to help mental health

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:22 pm on 23 October 2019

MIT horticulture students have created a community garden at the Awhinatia Community Health Centre in Papakura. The aim of the garden is to connect patients and residents. It's also part of the DHB introducing the holistic Maori model of good health to patients for their recovery process. MIT horticulture lecturer Paul Padfield explains the project to Jesse.
