Free 5-Week Course!!!
9th March 2023
Being outdoors is more than just exploring new places and looking after your physical health. The outdoors is known to be a great place to improve your mental wellbeing too.
Throughout the summer and autumn, the North Range Glasshouse in the beautiful Walled Garden at Cannon Hall was host to Green Social Prescribing Courses, funded via a grant from South Yorkshire Community Foundation.
The Art for Wellbeing courses were led by artist Louise Wright. Participants explored their creativity using art materials whilst connecting with the natural environment.
The Green Wellbeing courses, led by Rachel Massey from Other Ways to Walk, enabled participants to experience living in the moment and learn how senses can be used to mindfully connect to nature.
Feedback from the courses was overwhelmingly positive and provided evidence that being outdoors and in nature is good for mental wellbeing as well as physical health.
As a result of additional funding secured by the Trust from South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Green Social Prescribing programme, we have been able to arrange further free 5-week wellbeing courses which are now available to book online.
Experience being in the moment and reveal how little we notice about the world and how we can use our bodies and senses to reconnect. Tune into the natural world in the beautiful surroundings of Cannon Hall, using techniques to boost your immune system, improve sleep and reduce stress.
Courses are suitable for adults with an interest in mindful connection to nature and refreshments and materials are provided.
Parking will be free for participants and you will receive £5 per session attended towards transportation costs.
The first course begins on Monday 13th March and sessions run from 1pm – 3:30pm.
