THE PLANETARY HEALING CENTRE & PLANETARY HEALING COMMUNITY WOODLAND
Mycobee Mushrooms collaborate with The Planetary Healing Centre, who share similar mission and ethos. Our collaboration is bringing Foraging Events and Mushroom growing classes to Planetary Healing Community Woodland.
The charity was founded in 2003 by a group of like-minded individuals with the desire to help others in the community who were struggling with their health and wellbeing. The charity s initial focus was to provide Holistic Health support for people who were unable to afford the full cost of therapies. Today the main focus is in Nature Connection outdoors work with volunteers. It is important to recognise there are many people who value and seek a holistic approach for their health and wellbeing to complement the support they receive from medical and other health professionals. Approximately 200 beneficiaries are impacted and supported on a regular basis by the charity work every year.
The Planetary Healing Centre work is rooted in connection to nature and connection to community. They recognise that an empowered individual with greater awareness and understanding of themselves can positively impact awareness and understanding of the surrounding community and the Earth.
