Planting for the Future— Enjoying a Spell of Summer Wellbeing

Planting for the Future discussionKeen local gardeners met at Muddy Boots again last week as part of the Planting For The Future project in Stanley, supported by Karbon Homes. The sessions are always busy and project lead Yvonne Ritchie said “We need more hours in the day. The gardeners are always busy exchanging ideas and tips about growing and nurturing their plants. A little late, but at the last session there was just enough time to pot on some tomato and cucumber plants, which are now happily living in our gardeners respective gardens.”

The group also work together to help each other with their garden preparation and layout. Karbon Homes will be providing wood to make some raised beds which will be planted up with some late summer vegetables, which all helps to keep the cost of buying fresh produce down.

Potting onAs well as nurturing their plants, the group also has a focus on their wellbeing, lead by MHNE’s own holistic therapist, Sarah Wayt. Sarah encourages the group to explore their health and wellbeing against the backdrop of complementary and alternative medicine. Providing practical take-home tips alongside chats about how holistic understanding can aid everyday life; Sarah’s sessions provide a safe space to nourish mind, body and spirit.
