West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership are doing some fantastic work on their Green Social Prescribing programme. Details of the projects can be found half way down the webpage.  

 

They are funding 10 projects across healthcare and community settings which aim to use green space and nature to improve physical and mental health to benefit communities with low access. Among these are initiatives focused on allotments and urban gardens for service users to grow their own food and learn how to cook healthy meals from the food they harvest.

There is more information about the benefits of nature for health on the CSH Green Space and Health short course. This course will support you in how to design, implement and evaluate a project. Block booking options are available for groups of 20 or more.
