Wellbeing Program Application - For Individuals

Hello! 

We’re really excited that you’ve found us and are keen to know more about our wellbeing program for individuals. It’s a great introduction to the farm if you’re experiencing mental health concerns. Our programs for individuals run for six weeks, typically on Friday mornings from 9am - 12pm and are currently offered FREE of charge.

Our next program commences 18 October - 22 November 2019.

On entry into the program we will work with you to complete a personal wellbeing plan to ensure that you’re getting the most out of what we can offer. And we’ll support you throughout the course to track your progress towards the goals you set. 

On completion of the program you are welcome to join our weekly volunteer sessions and continue growing and harvesting produce. You may also be able to participate in future wellbeing programs as a participant or mentor.

Whether you have little or lots of experience, if you’re interested in gardening, our wellbeing program aimed at promoting positive mental health is for you!
