We are excited to share the news that our partner The Counselling & Family Centre is developing an allotment in Altrincham.
They will be inviting groups, schools and individuals the opportunity to grow and to cultivate a therapeutic community plot.
The CFC have studied the benefits of working with horticulture and vegetation and how this can promote increased wellbeing and mental health. Some of those potential benefits for individuals working with greenspace are:
- reduced anxiety/stress
- reduced depression
- improved physical activity
- and reduced social isolation.
Are you interested in being part of this exciting project or do you know of a group that would benefit and like to contribute to this project?
If so then please contact Jim at the Counselling & Family Centre by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
