Information for primary care and mental health and community services

Our ecotherapy sessions are free of charge and tailored for people experiencing mild to moderate mental health needs, such as depression, anxiety, isolation, chronic stress and low confidence and self-esteem.

There is growing evidence that being active outdoors in nature helps to improve mental and physical wellbeing. Our programme has an outstanding track record, with over 85% of our supported volunteers consistently reporting reduction in stress, improved mood and self-esteem, greater social connections and confidence, and mental and physical wellbeing from their time in our garden.

Watch this short film to find out more about our garden and the benefits of ecotherapy.

We are open every Wednesday and Friday and offer a morning session from 11am to 1pm, and afternoon session from 2pm to 4pm.
