The La Muralla Association will have a therapeutic garden at the Tarragona Tennis Club
The Tarragona Tennis Club is starting a social project with the La Muralla Association, dedicated to the insertion of people with mental health problems. The initiative is called 'Cultivating the mind' and consists of maintaining a natural space that is located inside the club's sports facilities and will serve as a therapeutic garden.
The project will consist of three phases: the recovery of this wooded space located in the Park area of the club, the creation of new spaces for landscaping and its maintenance. It is intended for users of La Muralla but also for volunteers, relatives, students and people who are already part of the association and those who want to collaborate; members of the Tarragona Tennis Club and workers, such as maintenance staff, may also be added.
It is scientifically proven that interaction with nature brings numerous benefits to mental health: it is a natural stimulus for our mood; it provides time for reflection and thinking and allows you to learn new things.
The La Muralla Association contemplates within this therapeutic garden spaces dedicated to medicinal, aromatic, fatty flowers, hanging garden, urban garden, plant hospital (plants in recovery), the corner of peace (space to meditate and relax ) and another for decorated trees and colorful benches.
In parallel, the users of the Wall have also been doing physical activity in the facilities of the Tarragona Tennis Club for a few years.
