    Episode Three - Back to Nature

    Episode Three - Back to Nature

    This time on the Live Borders Podcast we are at getting back to nature at Harestanes Countryside Visitors Centre.

    We are joined by Anna Craigen from the Borders Forest Trust and Charlotte Jones from the Health team at Live Borders.

    This month we are discussing the links between being in nature and how this has a positive effect to your mental health and wellbeing. Telling you about the trees and birds to spot around Harestanes during your visit, and how by volunteering to lead a Macmillan walk from Harestanes you can help someone living with cancer and beyond.

    You can find out more about volunteering at Live Borders here:

    This time Local History and Archive Assistant Kathy Hobkirk from our Heritage Hub on what we learned from a collection of diaries written by a Selkirk GP in the early 1900’s. And we ask assistant curator Phoebe Stewart what does it taken to look after the collections we have across our museums and galleries, make them accessible for us to see and enjoy now, and to preserve them for future generations.
