Following on from the previous sessions considering mental health, wellbeing and rural life we heard from Dr Jenny Mercer and Dr Debbie Clayton from Cardiff Met University. Jenny and Debbie have a wealth of experience on the rural environment and its effects on health. They are currently part of a team evaluating an EcoTherapy project for Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust.
It is hoped that this session will prompt us to think about the resources we have available, whether it be a small hanging basket, a church garden, a graveyard, or an allotment, that could be used to promote Wellbeing in our communities.
Positively Rural is an online community hosted by the Yorkshire Plus Learning Network, but open to anyone of any denomination involved or with an interest in rural ministry, including volunteers, lay workers and clergy.
