UK Mental Health Awareness Week

In alignment with the UK Mental Health Awareness Week, why not join presenter Nigel Cox to discuss the state of wellbeing and mental health in the garden!

Working outside in nature has been shown to alleviate mental health problems and reduce anxiety levels. Gardening particularly has prospered during the lockdown with people spending more time in the open air.

In this presentation Nigel Cox (Senior Horticulture lecturer at Bridgwater and Taunton College) will discuss how mental health problems can be helped in the garden and look at some of the ways this can be done including the use of plants and other activities including meditation and promotion of mindfulness.

So for all of you that have missed you local Gardening Club events, why not tune into this free event in support of the Red Cross!

Date  9th June 2021 Doors [email protected] 7pm for a start time of 7:15pm
