Enrych Partners With TCV on Exciting New Gardening Project!

Enrych have teamed up with TCV (The Conservation Volunteers) on a project at the Millenium Garden in Measham. The plan to work together to reduce social isolation and improve mental and general health and wellbeing started during lockdown when a 'Nature & Nurture' session was launched.

Bev Cowley, Business Development Manager said "At Enrych we know how feeling lonely can also have a negative impact on your mental health, especially if these feelings have lasted a long time and during the pandemic we have worked hard to engage with the vulnerable adults in our community." Bev explained "Research suggests that loneliness is associated with an increased risk of certain mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, sleep problems and increased stress and joint projects like the one coming up in Measham provides a fantastic platform for adults living with poor mental health to come together and support each other."

The project will see the Millenium Garden which stands on the site of former railway sidings and contains a formal walled garden be transformed into a communal space for everyone to enjoy. The Nature & Nurture group have been working on ideas to replant overgrown areas as well as planting flowers and vegetables and fruit trees and making insect houses and bird boxes.

Ben Woolley from TCV said "We met on site for the first time yesterday and I was thrilled to see such support from Enrych, it was great to enjoy the outdoors and chat about the plans for the future of the Millenium Garden." Ben added, "The team at Enrych are really positive and excited to be working on something so important to the community, this area will provide a fabulous space for anyone living with poor mental health and those who have felt isoalted during the pandemic, even if they just want to come along for a chat and a cuppa, they are very welcome!"

The next Nature and Nurture session will be on Tuesday 23rd March followed by an on-site session on April 1st. For more details on how to join the group email Bev here
