Derbyshire Wildlife Trust will be delivering the sessions to members of the Grapevine organisation both on and off site. As part of the sessions, we will be creating a planting area in their yard from recycled materials.
Diane Gould, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s People Engagement Officer said “I am delighted that we can work with Grapevine again this year. Having worked with this group for the last 2 years of the project, we have been able to see first-hand the benefit that working with nature has had on the group. To be able to continue for a 3 rd year is invaluable to us.”
Participants will also go out to local wildlife spaces to take part in wildlife conservation, such as habitat improvements, learning basic bushcraft skills, taking part in guided walks and nature ID sessions, and be skilled in an introduction to surveying.
Scott Reid, Environment and Sustainability Officer at Nestlé Waters said: “We are thrilled the Get Better with Nature program will reach the Grapevine Wellbeing Centre for a third year. These sessions will allow more people in our local community to engage with nature, an activity which has proven positive benefits to mental health and wellbeing.”
The sessions will take place from late June - end of August. Get Better with Nature has been designed to promote an understanding of nature and the benefits it can have on our health and wellbeing. Working with Buxton's local businesses, schools and charities to encourage more people to make the most of interacting with nature.
