We help people improve their wellbeing and mental health through volunteer conservation and wildlife gardening in Nottinghamshire.
People are changing their lives step by step, doing useful work in supportive company, surrounded by nature at the Muddy Fork garden.
Seeing people change keeps us working to help it happen.
Feeling low, stressed, isolated? Lots of other people are too but we seldom talk about it. That's why Muddy Fork is here.
Come and volunteer in our garden, with friendly people, and nature all around at the Idle Valley Nature Reserve in Retford.
Friends and families. If this might help someone you know, please put them in touch with us.
Gardening for Wellbeing works well together with clinical therapies and as follow up support.
