Light & Dark Workshop – how time spent outdoors improves sleep

Why do we go to sleep late and struggle to get up on time? Before we used artificial lights, our sleep cycles were guided by the light of the sun.

During this 2 hour workshop, you will be able to experience the tranquillity of a summer’s evening at Borde Hill during a fun and relaxing walk through the Garden.

You will also discover the benefits of natural light for our circadian rhythms and learn how to maximise your sensory experience of natural light to help you reset your body clock and permanently improve your sleep patterns.

The workshop is delivered by a qualified tutor from GardenLife Lab and includes both theory and practical elements. It will take place in the Garden Marquee and outside in the Garden. Suitable for beginners.

GardenLife Lab offers a range of courses and workshops with three core messages: Garden Biodiversity, Gardens & Wellbeing, and Emerging Scientists. Their vision is to encourage engagement with gardens to support wildlife conservation, improve health and wellbeing, and to inspire the next generation of scientists.
