Wellbeing participant Catherine shares her experience of taking part in our programmes and the positive impact it's had on her...
The Mayfield Nurseries wellbeing programme has helped me by giving me a sense of purpose and routine during the week. I have something to look forward to!
The people who work at Mayfield Nurseries are so welcoming and I’ve made some great friends along the way, it really cheers me up being able to share a joke or two, I also love working with plants and feel I have learnt so much, for example spending time around nature and greenery really can help you to feel better.
If someone is thinking about signing up to a Programme at Mayfield I would 100% recommend they do it and give it a try – what do you have to lose? Everyone is so friendly and helpful. You’ll be based within Mayfield Park and it’s so peaceful and relaxing. You’ll learn about so many different plants in a friendly and welcoming environment.
The staff at Mayfield Nurseries are always on hand to help and have supported me by being there when I needed them, whether that be to ask a little question, or if there is something bigger which I’m feeling unsure about.
The team at Mayfield have helped me to believe in myself, the experience has given my confidence a boost, and when I reflect on it, it’s given me hope.Back to all news Become a member
