  Title A chiropractor’s dream: the Teen Summit and the Green Hub Project for Teens
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2021 Jul;20(1):1733-1739
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Inspired by a chiropractor and conceived initially as the Teen Summit, the Green Hub Project for Teens is a local community project that focuses on the improvement of teenagers’ (13-18 year olds) mental health. It resides in Milford, Surrey, UK, in a tranquil, walled garden, designed to support the wellbeing of teenagers’ mental health by providing a safe and welcoming environment in which they can engage in social and therapeutic horticulture. In partnership with the NHS (National Health Services), the Green Hub Project has been designed to provide a resource for local healthcare providers to refer emotionally challenged teenagers to enjoy nature while gardening alongside and interacting with skilled volunteers and others of their own age. The design of the project was to achieve positive, measurable goals and outcomes for teens’ mental wellbeing including encouraging self-acceptance, active lifestyles, positive social interaction, inclusion and respect for diversity, and the development and application of a range of learned life skills (teamwork, responsibility, planning and follow through, creativity, problem solving, affirming and supporting others and conflict resolution).
