As part of the exclusive all-encompassing Elysium Wellness Lifestyle™ programme , gardening activities onboard are an elective for those residents, beginners or seasoned gardeners missing their home gardening, to seek therapy, serenity, and a proud sense of satisfaction. There are many ‘green spaces’ onboard to add colour and a sense of terrestrial attachment for all onboard, and a boost of localised Oxygen generation! There are dedicated areas around the ship, externally and internally, for decorative gardens, plants, and small trees. There are also medicinal and culinary herb gardens for fresh daily harvesting for use in the various onboard kitchens, and for evening relaxation, fresh mint and limes for the Mojitos!
This article from AgWeek reinforces the academic proof in many cited references on the immense physical, social, and mental health benefits from this past-time.
Elysium is proud to have this activity available for both residents and crew alike as a relaxing outlet onboard. Our monthly invited celebrity gardener is supported by our extensive range of onboard gardening tools provided by our partner sponsor, and assisted by our full-time gardening-landscaping team.

What is also spectacular is that the ship flora and fauna onboard are a showcase for all the varieties that exist in Australasia, all in one location. Regular onboard video shows hosted by our hardware and gardening equipment partner, captures the beauty of what garnishes the ship throughout in a kaleidoscope of colours.
