Welcome to Dig This! Gardening for Happiness and Well-Being! We are master’s degree students from the Institute of Archaeology, University College London working in collaboration with the Geffrye Museum of the Home on an exciting project about gardening and happiness in the urban home.
The Geffrye Museum in Hoxton, showcases urban living rooms from the English middle-class throughout the last 400 years. It is also home to spacious and peaceful period and herb gardens. The project looks at well-being in the urban middle-class home gardens in London, exploring this place as an oasis where happiness, health, nature, and family come together throughout history.
This blog is a space for us to share with you our ideas, inspirations, tips and other fun things – all related to how gardening can improve our lives. We will also update about the progress of our project – you’ll be able to see how it all comes together!
