You might support, or know someone who supports a friend or family member as a carer.

People with a mental illness, disability, or chronic illness, often have a support person in their lives; someone to offer a helping hand or listening ear. Similarly, people with an alcohol and/or drug dependency, and those with a terminal illness also often have a person in their life who helps out. In this way, a carer is giving of themselves.

Although every situation is different, it is important for carers to take some time out to look after their own wellbeing. Green Gym is a wellbeing program built for this purpose.

A welcoming and flexible program, Green Gym is a way to connect with nature, while improving fitness and wellbeing. Set beside the tranquil Auburn Botanic Gardens in the Cumberland Council Nursery, activities include growing seedlings, weeding garden beds and learning about plant care.

Situated in the middle of the bustling Western Sydney suburb of Auburn this small green oasis beside Duck River is popular with locals and visitors alike. You will meet other carers, become a friend of the Award Winning Auburn Botanic Gardens, and have an opportunity to focus on your own health.

There will be plenty of cups of tea and coffee and the venue is well shaded covered with close access to bathrooms.

With peacocks wandering freely around the site you will get to spend a few hours each week in a small urban sanctuary with a background of birdsong as you enjoy a morning or afternoon in the famous Japanese Gardens or under shelters in the community nursery.
