Garden for Wellbeing

The Garden for Wellbeing is beginning to take form in the spaces around the Centre’s Victorian building. The Centre offers a range of learning and leisure activities, courses and events such as Art, Craft, Design and Gardening.

Join us in the Garden for Wellbeing.

Are you someone who sees the creative potential in neglected spaces? Do you wish you could green the grey? Perhaps you would like to escape from the challenges of the day and retreat to a space where you can live in the moment? Where you can smell the roses. Tune in to the buzzing of the bees pollinating the blossom. Feel the warmth as the basking butterflies do, as they drink on nectar rich plants. Hear the birds sing, whilst you’re watching the sunlight flicker through the trees that you helped to plant. When it’s time to share the harvest, you can pick an apple from the tree, take a bite and taste the sweet magic. This is the Garden for Wellbeing. If you share this vision, you are welcome to come along and be part of this new adventure and make this green dream a reality.

If you would like to help, but think you don’t know anything about gardening, be reassured that you will receive lots of support from the fully trained Project Leader, who is willing to share a wealth of knowledge with you. If you have some, or trug loads, of gardening skills and know-how, you are most welcome to come and share them in the Garden for Wellbeing.

The Garden for Wellbeing Group meet on the 1st and 2nd Monday of the month 2pm - 4pm.

Please email Marie a week in advance to confirm your attendance.

Refreshments and tools are provided, but please bring your sturdy boots and gloves.
