Get Up & Grow – Ecotherapy

What is ecotherapy I hear you ask? Well it was a new word to some of us here too but it is basically getting outdoors in the fresh air and how this simple act can improve both our physical and mental health. Couple this with planting and watching things grow and it can be really quite calming and life enhancing. Of course not everyone has green fingers but if you do have an interest in gardening then Suffolk Minds Get Up & Grow could be just the thing for you.

The project has allotments in Hadleigh, Haverhill, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich. You do not have to be a seasoned gardener to take part, as there are multiple opportunities to learn, as well as the chance to help create a growing space that can benefit many. It can also be a wonderful way to meet new people.

Times for the Get Up & Grow are as follows:

Haverhill: Thursdays 12.30-3.30pm
Hadleigh: Fridays 10am-1pm
Bury St Edmunds: Fridays 10am-1pm
Ipswich: First Thursday of the month 10am

Suffolk Mind describe Get Up & Grow as a service for people who either experience mild to moderate mental health problems, who want to help prevent the onset of mental ill-health or people who are either in recovery or who want to build emotional resilience.
