Press Releases


The Green Team from the University of Exeter recently published a scientific study reporting the benefits of volunteering outdoors in gardening and conservation projects, which 'The Guardian' highlighted in their edition on Monday 2nd October.  This resulted in BBC East Midlands Today turning up at the Muddy Fork Wellbeing Garden based at Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trusts' Idle Valley Nature Reserve last week to find out more.  This is fantastic recognition for the charity's work and achievements, and great for raising awareness that people can take care of, and improve their own wellbeing, really quite simply and cheaply, by volunteering with conservation groups, or by volunteering with wellbeing and mental health gardens and projects like Muddy Fork, where the people come first and gardening second.
