Forest therapy is beneficial for everyone, regardless of age, socioeconomic background, or intellectual or physical abilities. Urban Edge is committed to bringing a nature connection and its wellness benefits to communities where access to nature might be limited but the need perhaps even stronger. This includes inner city communities, special needs populations, hospitals, local clinics, schools, and senior centers. Activities can take place in a park or community garden. For people who are not able to be outside, because of medical care or other circumstances, Urban Edge offers an indoor "remembering nature" program to improve wellbeing in ways similar to our outdoor programs.
If you are interested in arranging a forest therapy session for your community at a reduced or no fee, please contact us. Requests will be considered on a case by case basis. Below are examples of some of the organizations we have worked with:
