From 12-1pm on Wednesday 12th July, we will be holding an Animal Encounter session here at the CMG. SweetTree Farming For All, who will be running the session and bringing the animals, are passionate about the therapeutic benefits of the outdoors and interactions with animals. It has long been documented that spending time with animals can relieve stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental wellbeing issues.
We will have lots of different animals for service users to interact with: goats, sheep, rabbits, as well as our very own hens. It will be a fun, relaxed session and it would be great if staff members are able to accompany service users here for the hour. We are extremely fortunate to have this one-off session opportunity which has been funded by Watford Borough Council.
