Giving Back to Gaia
It is no surprise that being out in nature, particularly around trees, improves emotional health and wellbeing. At Harvey Heals, we LOVE spending time in nature. Research suggests that trees and nature help reduces depression and anxiety, especially when combined with exercise. More specifically, trees help reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol and increase a sense of wellbeing.
Harvey Heals are proud to support Tree Aid - a fantastic UK charity working with communities in the drylands of Africa where trees are often scarce. Tree Aid works hard to tackle poverty and the effects of the climate crisis. The charity plants trees, helps local communities create sustainable change, and make an income.
More specifically, we are supporting Tree Aid's 'She Grows' project, which aims to empower 1,000 women in Mali, to grow trees, food and create their own sustainable businesses. Giving back to Gaia through Tree Aid improves the environment (and much more!) for generations to come with increased oxygen in the air and better soil fertility; whilst promoting emotional health and wellbeing.
Every time you take part in an activity with Harvey Heals, we will donate funds for trees to be planted in drylands Africa, to empower as many women as possible. We want to make a social impact and help communities in Africa experience the benefits of trees and develop life changing essential skills.
