This course encourages people to use their gardens and spend more time connecting with nature as a tool to restore wellbeing and improve physical and psychological health. This course is due to be launched on our ThriveLearn online learning platform in early March 2020.

This course is suitable for:

General public, people looking to improve their health and wellbeing and people interested in the benefits of gardens and nature

What you will learn:

  • Course One: the benefits of gardens and nature – including the theories behind them and why humans relate to the outdoors
  • Course Two: the concept of an ‘affinity for nature’ and how it can relate to you
  • Course Three: how to create your own health and wellbeing plan using gardens and nature


Under 5 hours of learning.

This programme of courses will be free to access (thanks to funding from Notcutts) and will be designed to offer an introduction to the benefits of gardens and nature, including some of the theories behind why so many people report feeling better when in a garden or nature.

The courses are split into three, with each course being designed to take somewhere between an hour and 2 hours (depending on further reading and content of course) to complete.

All of the course/s are standalone, but we strongly advise people to work through them in order, starting with the information course (course one) then progressing to the more practical elements within course two and three.

This programme will use a range of delivery methods, including presentations, videos, discussion forums, quizzes, description tasks and forms to complete.

If you would like to register your interest in this course please complete the form below and we will be in touch once the courses are launched.

Your contact details will be used to send you information about this course but we’d also like to keep you updated about what’s happening at Thrive, including news about our work and how you can help support us.
