The Environment and Me (TEaM)

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust have partnered up with Coventry and Warwickshire Mind after successfully securing over £350,000 from the Big Lottery Fund to provide positive, engaging outdoor experiences for people experiencing poor mental health in Coventry.

About us

TEaM is an ecotherapy-based project in partnership with Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and Coventry and Warwickshire Mind. 

We are based across Coventry in various sites including allotment sites, rivers, woodlands, parks and greenspaces, all of which are easily accessible by public transport.

We are here to help enhance your mental health and wellbeing through outdoor activities which include:

  • Planting, growing and harvesting food and flowers
  • Learning about nature and wildlife
  • Seasonal crafts and woodwork
  • Walks and talks
  • Socializing with other TEaM members

These are just some of the activities we have for people to take part in. Don’t worry – no previous knowledge or experience is needed. Simply come along and meet the TEaM.
