Objectives

We are a community-based charity in Ealing supporting adults who are often socially isolated with their mental health. Our vision is that better mental health is accessible for all. We aim to meet individual needs through adaptive programmes and ongoing support, increasing knowledge and understanding of how to protect and maintain mental health. All our courses remain free to attend and help to connect people with nature-based experiences, in a socially supportive environment.

For over 10 years we have continually refined our evidence-based approach to ecotherapy in nature, with courses teaching food-growing, gardening, and other mindful nature-based activities from two green sites in Ealing and virtually online. Using the restorative benefits of nature to calm the mind, empowering people to create a lasting difference to their emotional and physical wellbeing in a safe place, free from discrimination. We promote and maintain recovery by improving wellbeing, transforming lives, and creating change that lasts.

Activities

We help create change that lasts by improving the quality of life of our participants through community-based and recovery-oriented approaches that:

  • Encourage individuals to build their internal capacity helping mental and emotional wellbeing
  • Create an environment for participants to connect with nature, and each other
  • Provide a range of skills and tools to use, both in the workplace and in everyday life
