Do you support a friend or family member as a carer, or know someone who does?

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 that 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. This is a peer-support program for carers that combines health and social interaction with conservation. Carers engage in meaningful nature-based activities with other carers, helping to build social connections between people who understand the challenges caring presents.

A welcoming and flexible program, Green Gym is a way to connect with nature, while improving fitness and wellbeing. Set within the stunning scenery of the Tweed coastline at Pottsville Beach, activities include growing seedlings, dune revegetation, light hand weeding and learning about native plants and wildlife and their care. The location offers lots of opportunities to take in the view, embark on guided coastal walks, dabble in some nature photography and meet like-minded people.

In this tranquil environment, Green Gym is an opportunity to focus on your own health.

There will be plenty of cups of tea and coffee, and healthy snacks will be on offer. The venue is close to all amenities, and transport can be arranged.
