I think your site is the old care cooperatives site where i was a horticultural therapist for 6 years from 1999 to 2005. I am so pleased to read about what your doing it sounds Wonderful. I think the Land is very special and it will always be very special to me and the amazing memories of all the fun we had. Good luck very Happy to support you.

I attended a training day here and loved it. As a result, I now take people to nature and nature to people, especially those with mental health or chronic pain issues. It helped inspire and launch my new wellness business even though I am now relocated to Dorset. Thanks, Jess and all the team! I trust you will reach your target. You have so many great testimonials. Plus one of my clients told me recently "when outside in nature he felt like a small cog within a big wheel". He was suffering from paranoia and had been shut indoors for over six months due to anxiety. I urge people to support Jess and her team to continue their fantastic work. Then we can all help people like this to enjoy life to the full again! Maria - Founder of Your Own True Nature
