Cultivate Aberdeen

Mental Health Awareness Week

May 2021

For Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 (May 10th – 16th), ACVO invited groups and individuals to share their thoughts on, and experience of, mental health and wellbeing in relation to the theme of that year’s week, ‘nature’.

Cultivate Aberdeen is a community initiative that provides food-growing and sustainable practice education and facilities to local areas across Aberdeen with a vision to create kind, confident, and connected communities through the power of food growing.

It was established in 2018 by George Bellamy who, believing in the power of small actions, created the charity as the answer to Aberdeen’s need to have a dedicated organisation supporting food-growing in the City and to work with those groups already making a difference within their communities.
