Hello members and friends,
We are not going to labour the COVID-19 message as we’re sure you all know about it and are taking the requisite precautions and getting on with life, in whatever way you can, while being safe.
Obviously we will not be holding face to face workshops, meetings or events for the foreseeable future.
We will, however, continue to develop Cultivate offerings and to plan the Green Heals project in readiness for post COVID-19 times.
Thinking about what we can do though, we have access to lots of wonderful technology and we are working on putting it to good use for our members and friends.
GoToMeeting facilities – keep connected – Members Only
One positive thing we can do right now is make our GoTo Meeting facilities
available for members, free of charge
, to connect with staff, customers, friends and family and community.
If you would like to access our GoToMeeting facilities please fill in this form
We will then confirm availability, schedule your session/s, and send you the link for your session or sessions.
Virtual ‘Coffee/wine’ sessions – have some fun, de-stress and learn something new.
We will also be scheduling some 'virtual coffee’
or for those who would prefer ‘virtual glass of wine’
sessions, hosted by various members on aspects of TH/HT.
Expect fun and practical tips and tricks to stay sane and connected during these challenging times.
Please feel free to contact us with ideas for the virtual sessions and if you would like to host one or more of them.
please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help with understanding what’s available from government and other sources to help you survive.
Personal therapy – reflective time
It’s very important at this time, particularly coming on top of the droughts, fires, and floods, that we take care of ourselves and to be compassionate to ourselves and everyone around us.
If you are having difficulties please don’t be afraid to reach out to us if you need practical and or emotional support.
If you can, take the time to reflect, be creative and most therapeutic of all - plant some flowers, veggies, trees, walk in nature if you can.
To help you indulge in some Horticulture Therapy, YATES have kindly donated some recently expired seeds for distribution: baby carrots, purple basil, curly-leaved parsley, marigolds, violas, pansies and lobelia.
Please fill in the order form
and we will organise to get the seeds to you. Limits will apply.
Stay safe, stay sane and see you all soon – be it virtually or face to face!
