GREEN Health Live 2 — a day conference that focuses on the health benefits of green spaces and gardening, particularly within parish and chaplaincy contexts — takes place on 5 June at Lambeth Palace.

It is organised jointly by the Conservation Foundation, the Guild of Health and St Raphael, and the Church Times.

Speakers include the Revd Jonathan Aitken, a former Cabinet minister, who is now a prison chaplain; the Revd Dr Isabelle Hamley, Chaplain to the Archbishop of Canterbury; and Professor Harriet Gross, Co-Director of the Centre for Culture and Creativity at the University of Lincoln, and author of The Psychology of Gardening.

The conference comes after the inaugural Church Times Green Health Awards last year (News, 5 October 2018).

Some tickets are still available, at £45 each, and can be purchased at
