Free event

In partnership with Derbyshire Mind

Growing Minds is an ecotherapy course designed in partnership with Derby County Community Trust and offered as part of our Celebrating the Cascade campaign.

The team from Derby County Community Trust will share with you the benefits of healthy eating, growing your own produce and coming together as a community while developing a greater awareness of our ecosystem. 

You will be invited to join in with a range of allotment-style activities, centered around resourceful growing, utilising your senses, and connecting with nature.

The session has been designed to encourage relaxation and to equip you with techniques that will allow you to use nature to support your mental health and well-being, no matter where you are. 

This is one in a series of wellbeing events run in partnership with Derbyshire Mind. Tickets will be available from 25 June, find out more here.

About the session

The event will take place at the Chatsworth Stickyard which is an outdoor, covered venue located in the Stand Wood near the Farmyard. There is a fairly steep incline to reach the venue. We will be going out into the Chatsworth Kitchen Garden – please ensure you dress appropriately for the weather. 

Please contact education@chatsworth.org if you have any questions about access and we will be able to advise you.

Please meet at the top garden gates (near the Stables) at 9.45am. 

Wellbeing at Chatsworth in partnership with Derbyshire Mind

We are delighted to partner with Derbyshire Mind for these new Wellbeing at Chatsworth events, part of our Celebrating the Cascade fundraising campaign.

Derbyshire Mind is working in collaboration with Chatsworth’s Learning and Engagement team and offering six different events, one each month from May to October. 

Each event is set within the beauty and calm of the garden and woodland and is focused on techniques to improve wellbeing and mood. 

The public programme events for the Celebrating the Cascade have been subsidised to keep charges to a minimum.

A Celebrating the Cascade event

Our new Celebrating the Cascade wellness sessions have been designed to delight and inspire you. We invite you to enjoy the calm and beauty of nature in the garden and wider landscape. Find balance as you step away from daily routines and pause with us by still and flowing waters. We invite you to open your heart and mind to the environment and connect with our wonderful surroundings.

The Celebrating the Cascade project is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery Players, the project is working to restore the Cascade, safeguarding it for the enjoyment of future generations and enabling more people to get involved with Chatsworth.

If you would like to support this project, please make a donation to Chatsworth House Trust here.
