      Hi all
      Norfolk Green Care Network is running some ‘Networkshops’ to which you’d be welcome, here are the details with registration links:
      24th March -‘Urban Playground’– Tim Gill (whose recent book includes some fascinating international case studies) and other speakers will join us to explore the growing movement towards ‘greening our cities’ and making them more child friendly, Hamila Sultan (Public Health Consultant) will outline the efforts in Birmingham to expand and develop their green spaces and local architect Anthony Hudson will talk about design and planning in our cities and towns, post covid (4pm- 5.30pm)

      7th April- Growing Together- setting up and running Community Allotments- we have a number of speakers from local projects to share their experiences and advice (4pm- 5.30pm)

      21st April- ‘The Natural Health Service’– Isabel Hardman’s book includes a ‘manifesto’ for connecting with nature; we will discuss what this means and what we can do. This will include expert speakers (including Professor Tim O’Riordan and Hugh Somerleyton) on topics such as nature connection in social prescribing, employee health, protecting and enhancing nature etc. (4pm- 5.30pm)

      5th May- Recruiting and supporting volunteers, something I know is of vital importance to many green care projects. Voluntary Norfolk will be contributing and guiding us through the support they can offer, including the idea of a ‘volunteer passport’ (4pm- 5.30pm)

      19th May- Green Social Prescribing- hear about the evidence supporting ‘green care’ from Professor Jules Pretty , find out about the prize- winning Dundee Green Health Partnership from Dr. Viola Marx, the view from Natural England’s Giles Merritt (including an update on the national Green Social Prescribing pilots) and hear regional and local views on the development of social prescribing from regional NHS leads Tim Anfilogoff and Sian Brand and Julie Ringer from the National Academy for Social Prescribing will outline what NASP does and has to offer(4pm-5.30pm)

      Hi Nigel.

      I’m so sorry this didn’t get approved sooner. Do please let us know if there are more events coming up over the summer.
