Activity: The ‘Step Outside ’allotment gardening project at Kingston Lacy, offers people with dementia and/or carers the chance to socialise, work together as part of a team or just to enjoy being outside. ‘Step Outside’ is collaboration between Wimborne Dementia Friendly Communities, the National Trust and Alzheimer’s Society. During the growing season (March-October) we meet at the allotments and garden together or just enjoy being outside. As well as gardening, people can cut flowers and arrange in to bouquets to take home, as well as making lavender bags. Crops are harvested and people can take vegetables home to enjoy. We always have tea and biscuits! We can provide seating plus shade in the summer and a dry place to shelter if it is cold or raining. For people living with dementia and their carers/families.
Fortnightly. on the first and third Tuesday of the month.

Accredited Natural Choices activities are regular (weekly/fortnightly) and providers have public liability insurance and health and safety policies.
Non-accredited Natural Choices activities are less frequent (e.g. monthly) and/or providers are community groups without insurances or policies but activities are equally beneficial to health and wellbeing.
