Greenspace Wellbeing Project

Being connected to nature has been shown to improve our mood and lessen symptoms of depression and anxiety. Our new Mind without Borders Greenspace Project is exclusively for Refugee and Asylum Seekers who would like to just get outside in a safe, quiet space with others, to cook together over the campfire, make some crafts and get in touch with the seasons.

This project is held once a week at ‘Boiling Wells’ which is a wooded space belonging to St Werburgh’s City Farm. The space is private with no public access, and so it allows us to relax outside without fear of passersby, dogs or wayward footballs! Although it is a free drop-in, we will be complying to max of 15 people so it will be based on a first come, first served basis.

Participants can arrive any time on a Thursday after 1pm and stay for as long as they like until 4pm. In January, we will be offering to meet people outside the Malcolm X Community Centre in St Pauls at 12.30pm and walk down to Boiling Wells together.

This project is funded until end of March 2021, and we will be offering some additional day trips to other green spaces in April.
