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.

We currently have spaces available. if you know someone who may benefit from our service, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
