@cgenter #occhat Good evening hopefully We will be able to share an interesting hour discussing allotmentgardening. Anyone got a plot of their own?
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:00:28 +0100)
@cgenter #occhat I should probably confess from the beginning that I haven’t (yet!) although do spend alot of time talking to people who do

(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:02:01 +0100)

@cgenter RT @Artie_OT : @cgenter I have a small plot 🙂 #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:02:24 +0100)
@BillWongOT @cgenter In US, my place has a big backyard, though it is my parents who do the gardening work mostly.#occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:02:35 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Good evening all… looking forward to this evening topic. Allotment Gardening! #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:02:39 +0100)
@WinnieMcGivern @cgenter do you find any problems with allotment gardening being seasonal? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:03:27 +0100)
@cgenter #occhat @Artie_OT that’s good to hear how do you get on with it?
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:03:56 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @cgenter I must say I am not really even green fingered in my own garden, but interested in the scienceand what you have found. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:04:03 +0100)
@kirstyes RT @fullyOccupied : Enjoy tonight’s #occhat -I’ll catch up l8er as I’m out, thought I’d send you this-our allotment keeps us well 🙂 http://t.co/KplnFb31
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:04:56 +0100)
@cgenter @BillWongOT #occhat I guess in US an allotment is similar to a community garden, although I understandthese are done communally?
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:04:59 +0100)
@kirstyes @fullyOccupied love this. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:05:03 +0100)
@cgenter @WinnieMcGivern #occhat it’s had a bit of an impact with my data collection for sure
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:05:14 +0100)
@SandySom @cgenter #occhat Yes I have my own plot at a site where I did my research #humangeographyphd
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:05:46 +0100)
@cgenter RT @Artie_OT : @cgenter it is only a small plot and I have only started it earlier on this year, but havegrown many fruit and veg! #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:05:54 +0100)
@Artie_OT @ cgenter #occhat has anyone used horticulture as a therapeutic medium? What was your experience?
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:05:55 +0100)
@kirstyes Evening all, only just got in. #occhat . Really looking forward to finding out more about Chris’ work.I too am not green fingered.
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:06:13 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @WinnieMcGivern Hello Winnie and welcome! Glad you made it. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:06:14 +0100)
@BillWongOT @cgenter well… in that sense, I do see one in my church. It’s a small memorial garden. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:06:23 +0100)
@WinnieMcGivern @cgenter How did you manage it? Did you chose garden related (but indoor) activities in the wintermonths? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:06:56 +0100)
@WinnieMcGivern @Helen_otuk Hi Helen glad to finally be here :0) #occhat

@OT_Expert hi all, i dream of having my own veg patch but not sure if i will ever be able to devote the time #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:07:47 +0100)
@DebbiiHarrison @Helen_otuk @cgenter I think that planting seeds gives something to live for when feeling low, just apersonal observation #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:07:48 +0100)
@kirstyes The year we moved in a friend came and helped us plant stuff and I enjoyed looking after it but don’t know enough. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:08:05 +0100)
@cgenter @WinnieMcGivern #occhat will initial phase of interviews were done over summer, then will do next phase inspring, so analysis at mo

@gilliancrossley I saw a pres on allotment gardening and was really impressed. liked use of reminiscence using smell..#occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:08:38 +0100)
@kirstyes #occhat was devastated when caterpillars came and munched on my lovely rocket. I did enjoy eating homegrown produce.
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:08:47 +0100)
@cgenter RT @seedparade : @Artie_OT @cgenter yes agree 100% and the food you get is helthier and tastier thananything else you could eat #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:08:49 +0100)
@SandySom @cgenter Thanks Chris, yes writing up now research done on 2 sites in somerset, one where I had a plot#occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:09:23 +0100)
@cgenter @DebbiiHarrison #occhat yes would very much go along with that
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:09:23 +0100)
@cgenter #occhat my first task was systematic review (still waiting results of peer review!) suggested 7 themes
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:10:20 +0100)
@BillWongOT @cgenter @seedparade @Artie_OT well… on that definition, though, my home does have a few fruit trees. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:10:37 +0100)
@DebbiiHarrison @OT_Expert @helen_otuk @cgenter I think that the organisation Thrive has done research into the therapeutic benefits #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:11:48 +0100)
@kirstyes @SandySom @cgenter interesting. What type of research did you do Rebecca? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:11:48 +0100)
@SandySom @cgenter #occhat interested in bodily & material engagements but also how they can create community#allotments
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:11:50 +0100)
@cgenter #occhat these are: stress relieving refuge, healthier lifestyle, a social network, spiritual/emotional experience, sense of developing
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:12:15 +0100)
@cgenter #occhat sense of personal control and also a personal challenge
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:12:56 +0100)
@kirstyes RT @gilliancrossley : I saw a pres on allotment gardening and was really impressed. liked use of reminiscence using smell.. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:13:26 +0100)
@SandySom @kirstyes @cgenter #occhat ethnographic research incl interviews auto-ethnographic notes of my experiences & running cooking events on plots
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:13:29 +0100)
@BillWongOT @seedparade @cgenter @Artie_OT yes… because my home in the US has a big Japanese garden. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:13:39 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley hadn’t thought about that angle. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:13:42 +0100)
@OT_Expert @DebbiiHarrison @helen_otuk @cgenter I’ve heard about them – here’s there websitehttp://t.co/TBlcYqV8 #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:13:43 +0100)
@cgenter @SandySom #occhat #allotments yes is this allotment sites set up to develop a community, or the informal community from participating?
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:13:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @SandySom @cgenter I think church is a great example, especially if they have a ministry at the church dedicated to this. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:14:16 +0100)
@kirstyes RT @cgenter : #occhat these are: stress relieving refuge, healthier lifestyle, a social network, spiritual/emotional experience, sense of developing

(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:14:19 +0100)
@seedparade @BillWongOT @cgenter @Artie_OT talking about research if interested in what are the most popular veg and herbs #occhat http://t.co/bQjvjynR
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:14:26 +0100)
@kirstyes @SandySom @cgenter love the cooking aspect. Is that something that was happening already then, inspired by what? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:15:24 +0100)
@cgenter @DebbiiHarrison #occhat yes they certainly have, I think the benefits are there for all. I’m interested in public health aspect
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:15:27 +0100)
@SandySom @cgenter #occhat they are informal ones in small rural places where more community space is needed
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:15:47 +0100)
@DebbiiHarrison @cgenter #occhat great themes. I can’t remember Jon’s surname name who did the research with MH service users on an allotment
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:16:03 +0100)
@claireOT #occhat hi all, just wondered what your thoughts were on gardening as a metaphor for recovery, creating environment, nurturing, challenge

@kirstyes Sharing it here from the summary. One of my PhD supervisors projects. http://t.co/1iBCPBDZ Digging for Health. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:16:31 +0100)
@BillWongOT @cgenter @DebbiiHarrison I think it can be… especially if mental health facility has its own gardening group. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:16:48 +0100)
@OT_Expert How does it work?? @Artie_OT : @OT_Expert There is such thing as a square metre plot…I use this method and it is fab! Check it out!? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:17:03 +0100)
@cgenter @DebbiiHarrison #occhat There has been another recent one by Mason and Conneley (2012) a group for fathers & preschool children
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:17:21 +0100)
@cgenter RT @Artie_OT : @cgenter have you come across sensory gardens too, they are amazing and useful therapeutic mediums! #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:17:43 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter that does seem to make sense. Was there a difference with experience level with gardeners?#occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:17:48 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat actually that is my focus area, how does it inform identity and vice versa so one aspect is Wilcock’s idea of becoming
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:18:35 +0100)
@SandySom #occhat Written a blog post about trials and tribulations of growing – called Neglecting the Plothttp://t.co/eoJE8L4t
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:18:41 +0100)
@claireOT #occhat if anyone is looking for how-tos, Thrive and the RHS both share great resources,can also be great practice to enable s.u’s skills…
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:18:53 +0100)
@cgenter #occhat i.e. what is the process of “becoming” an allotment gardener like? how does it influence well-being?
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:19:14 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter #occhat This is just about allotment gardening rather than tending your own home’s garden, right?They are quite different I imagine
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:19:20 +0100)
@claireOT … Many s.us come to us with great experience of gardening- there’s no problem in learning from them!#occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:19:47 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat personally yes I think so, they are used for different purposes (although some grow veg at home)
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:19:49 +0100)
@OT_Expert #occhat just came across this – not read it in full but looked interesting http://t.co/TN6wJkKd
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:20:14 +0100)
@seedparade RT @OT_Expert : @DebbiiHarrison @helen_otuk @cgenter I’ve heard about them – here’s there websitehttp://t.co/TBlcYqV8 #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:20:42 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat paper by Hawkins et al (2011) suggests allotment gardening had bigger wel-being impact for ppl from lower socio-economic
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:20:55 +0100)
@OT_Expert @Artie_OT : @OT_Expert you make a square metre plot and section it out into 25cm squares…grow your crops in rotation!? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:21:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @cgenter I agree, especially if you lead clients into doing these tasks in community settings.#occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:21:32 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat they felt this might because it was natural environment away from their home (will include article link in write up!)
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:22:01 +0100)
@OT_Expert Thanks 🙂 @Artie_OT : @Artie_OT @OT_Expert I got the idea from BBC Gardeners World magazine earlier this year!? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:22:07 +0100)
@OT_Expert @Artie_OT don’t forget your #occhat tags 🙂
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:22:24 +0100)
@SandySom Hey this had come into my research too, idea of becoming by doing – here gaining know-how Crouch 2003 Grosz 1999 Nash 2000 #occhat

@DebbiiHarrison RT @cgenter : @kirstyes #occhat paper by Hawkins et al (2011) suggests allotment gardening had bigger wel-being impact for ppl from lower socio-economic
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:23:13 +0100)
@kirstyes @SandySom @cgenter NT? I think the seed to consumption issue would be the main driver for me as I’m not a natural gardener. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:23:22 +0100)
@cgenter #occhat apologies for not responding too everything, can’t keep up with the tweets!
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:23:24 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter Great. Did that investigation seem to be missing from the literature? Remind me what population you are exploring? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:24:25 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes @SandySom #occhat yes and this is theme in current interviews growing for food and the huge variety of things you do with it
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:24:32 +0100)
@allisulli My #garden is one of my most meaningful occupational pursuits and places. #occhat http://t.co/IPAdJ1S6
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:24:55 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter yup my experience was at home, hidden away in back garden where no one can see. Maybe it being on show adds motivation? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:25:05 +0100)
@Artie_OT @OT_Expert #occhat no problem! You just have to rotate roots, brassicas, peas/beans and salad crops to prevent disease and club root!
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:25:13 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @cgenter don’t worry it can get a bit busy! The 24hr rule helps. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:25:14 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat it is suggested with allotment gardening as a therapeutic activity, but this is v different to the everyday experience
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:25:20 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter I honestly don’t know lots about allotments. Are they expensive to own? Is this community projects? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:25:57 +0100)
@SandySom @kirstyes @cgenter National Trust had big campaign to create new growing spaces #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:26:02 +0100)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT @cgenter Yes it seems from Chris’ review that the community/social aspect is probably really important. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:26:37 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter thanks. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:26:54 +0100)
@BillWongOT This is a sneak preview of the garden of my home in the US. #occhat http://t.co/27l2vrnf
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:27:11 +0100)
@claireOT @kirstyes people I worked with, who said they saw their gardening as a metaphor for working towards recovery #occhat #mentalhealth
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:27:23 +0100)
@cgenter @SandySom @kirstyes #occhat i think it is important for natural childhood agenda too, ppl describe older relatives introducing allotment
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:27:45 +0100)
@cgenter @claireOT #occhat #mentalhealth read the blogs before this, they are really interesting
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:28:04 +0100)
@claireOT @kirstyes particularly planting seeds as inpatients, taking seedlings out to community allotment to flower#occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:28:14 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter Yes I think that’s true of writing too. Therapeutic writing different to ‘naturally’ occurring. Why OS research important. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:28:15 +0100)
@SandySom @kirstyes @cgenter #occhat yes I think it does, as there are site rules you sign up to. I think its somewhere to get away from home too
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:28:23 +0100)
@DebbiiHarrison @cgenter @kirstyes #occhat I’ve heard of schemes where communities share spare garden space with neighbours and share produce love this idea
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:28:24 +0100)
@BillWongOT @cgenter @SandySom @kirstyes yes… I agree. When I was a child before moving to the US, gardening was not a critical thing in HK. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:28:58 +0100)
@claireOT @kirstyes interestingly, we found the allotment community to be incredibly inclusive of our group- treated like any other gardeners #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:29:07 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat it probably applies to most occupations, we have focused on too small a pop for too long in research?
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:29:14 +0100)
@kirstyes @claireOT Yes this makes a lot of sense now. Thanks. Think Chris looking at more everyday occurrence but both important insights. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:29:19 +0100)
@Artie_OT @cgenter #occhat …anyone heard of ‘incredible edible todmorden’? This would be a fab OT venture!
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:29:52 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes @BillWongOT #occhat sorry missed this, yes community aspect did seem important, ppl talk about it like the “old days”
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:29:55 +0100)
@claireOT @kirstyes I wonder if slight eccentricities in behaviour are not as stigmatised in gardening settings? There were many examples #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:30:00 +0100)
@BillWongOT @cgenter @SandySom @kirstyes In HK, it will be critical occupation for those who live in New Territories & far away from cities. #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:30:26 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter @sandysom yes my parents have never been keen gardeners. Odd just had convo in office about social groups influencing us #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:30:29 +0100)
@cgenter @Artie_OT #occhat i’ve not seen this, will google later? any oither info?
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:30:31 +0100)
@kirstyes @SandySom @cgenter What type of rules out of interest? #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:31:08 +0100)
@BillWongOT @cgenter @kirstyes that’s where in the US can have some advantages. 🙂 #occhat

@kirstyes RT @DebbiiHarrison : @cgenter @kirstyes #occhat I’ve heard of schemes where communities share spare garden space with neighbours and share produce love this idea

@claireOT @KayFSheldon I learn so much from the experiences and ideas of service users- I’m happy to not be “the expert”! I just facilitate. #occhat

@cgenter @claireOT #occhat reckon you are on to something there, things like urinating on your compost heap is apparently acceptable practice!

@kirstyes @DebbiiHarrison @cgenter Yes I agree, shared responsibility and collaboration. #occhat

@cgenter @claireOT #occhat thats the beauty of occupation in a therapeutic setting, you can be the novice and the client can be the expert

@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat yes the description of allotment gardening in the mason & conneley article is a good example. They met once a fortnight
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:36:46 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter @claireot Wow! But if you did that in public parks, not so much! #occhat
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:37:24 +0100)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat and did “gardening activities, and craft” you’d never manage your own plot doing that

(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:39:19 +0100)
@DebbiiHarrison @cgenter #occhat I was pretty upset when rabbits ate my veggies, it was pretty disheartening but other crops survived!
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:39:44 +0100)
@cgenter @SandySom #occhat #allotments think my surprise was partly down to the fact that I don’t have a plot myself, which is a shortcoming
(Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:40:24 +0100)
@kirstyes @cgenter @sandysom @claireot so why go for more theoretical OS research rather than applied intervention? #occhat (think I know but checking

@cgenter @claireOT @kirstyes @ot_expert #occhat it’s interesting though because a plot does seem to be about controlling nature, keeping it tidy etc
