Eco-Therapy is designed to connect children to nature, raise aspirations and bring people together.
Reconnecting with nature and spending time outside can improve physical and mental health, as well as improve your mood massively.
Eco-Therapy can take place in both rural and urban settings. It involves varying amounts of physical activity.
At St. Nics’ Eco-Therapy takes place in our Wellbeing Garden.
-Digging patch with water, gravel, sand and a mud kitchen.
-Nature arts and crafts, doing art in or with Nature.
-Social horticulture, gardening work such as growing food and flowers, planting bulb and caring for the wildlife.
-Caring for animals, our Therapy Bunnies, spending time holding them, chatting with them, reading, grooming, feeding and cleaning them out. Just stroking an animal can calm a child/adult.
Sometimes children just need a little break from the classroom- Our Wellbeing Garden is just the place for this, a safe, relaxing green space waiting for your children.
