Therapeutic gardening sessions at Cody Dock

From Monday June 26th

We are launching a new Therapeutic Gardening project at Cody Dock in the newly constructed Growing Space.

The focus for the sessions will be engagement with nature and the environment as well as understanding biodiversity and climate change. Participation in gardening/arts and crafts activities (with the objective of improving participants’ mental and physical health and their general well-being), will help to reduce depression, isolation, loneliness and anxiety as well as increase self-confidence, boost mood and may lead to other significant changes and opportunities both at Cody Dock and beyond.

Come along and see how connecting with nature by participating in gardening activities in a peaceful environment can improve your mental and physical health and general well-being. Sessions for individuals will be on Mondays from 10:00 – 12:30 and from 13.30 – 16.00 (including tea break) supported by our experienced practitioner, Tim Brogden (Therapeutic Gardening Project Manager). Please sign-up below if you want to participate:

Tools, gloves and guidance will be provided and Growers will be using the new Growing Space, designed by architecture students from the University of Westminster, so if it rains there will be somewhere warm to meet. A key element of the sessions will be connecting with each other as well as with nature.
