Rooted in Nature

Rooted in Nature was a project supporting wellbeing for those referred to us via their GPs, by providing them with advice, care and general guidance, as well as nature-based activities and other such activities to help improve wellness.

Thr project offered one to one support and advice to individuals and families with mental health needs. Despite the activities being nature-based, no experience, skills or knowledge was needed to take part in any of the activities provided. The activities include:

  • walk and talk groups
  • basket weaving
  • wood work
  • growing and planting foods
  • gardening
  • conservation
  • campfire cooking
  • meditation

This project was delivered in partnership with Middlesbrough and Stockton MIND, Barefoot Kitchen, The Wildlife Trust (Tees Valley), Youth Focus North East and the Better Health at Work Award. The activities we delivered across Teesside included at our head offices here on the site of the old Nature’s World in Acklam, Fairy Dell, Newham Grange Farm, the Tees Barrage and more.
