Grow Together - MindspaceBack to Activities
'Grow Together' is a project centred around being outdoors, connecting, learning new skills and achieving a sense of accomplishment having cultivated your own patch of garden.
Participants will be supported to grown their own plants and vegetables within their own dedicated patch of growing space. They will be supported by a Coordinator who will bring knowledge and experience of gardening and teaching others and who will have been funded to undertake Thrive Training to develop an awareness of Social Therapeutic Horticulture. So as to enable as many people to benefit as possible, this project will enable open access sessions and workshops as well as targeted, socially prescribed interventions.
This is good for wellbeing because
- It provides a safe haven where people can come, be themselves, connect with others and learn more
about the maintenance of positive mental health and well-being.
- It encourages connected-ness and supporting the development of community assets. Mindspace aims
to encourage a culture of listening and neighbourly support so there are networks across the town that anyone can access, especially when they are facing personal challenges.
- Everything MindSpace does is working to achieve the following:
1) More people in Stamford are adopting the NHS 5 Ways to Wellbeing into their daily lives. Improving and maintaining positive mental well-being as a result.2) More people in Stamford are playing a role in community building by taking action to support their community to become more resilient (giving).3) As a key part of the integrated place-based team, MindSpace is a community hub where individuals and organisations are connecting and more services are being delivered in the community.
