Nature-based mindfulness

Being in nature supports our physical and mental health. Nature helps with the key mindfulness skills of being in our senses, having a broader awareness and having a less fixed sense of self in relationship with our surroundings.

Many of our trainers have a background in biology or ecology. We develop programmes that integrate learning mindfulness with gardening, walking and conservation activities. We also bring nature into our indoor and online courses and home practice activities, including for participants who are house-bound.

The Mindfulness Garden

The Mindfulness Garden is a collaboration between Horton Community Farm and the Leeds Mindfulness Co-operative. We combine gentle and accessible gardening with learning skills to help us be more aware, connected and kind to our minds.

The Mindfulness Garden courses and tasters are free for over 50s and for carers living in a Bradford postcode. Thank you to Bradford Council for funding this project.

Come and experience the benefits of spending time outdoors in a friendly, welcoming space. You will learn new skills and new ways towards wellbeing.

Mindful walks

We offer mindful walks both as taster sessions and as continuing practice for our community of people who have completed courses with us. We collaborate with organisations to tailor walks to the needs of participants. This can range from seeing an urban park with new eyes, to helping people to access the Dales.
