What We Do:

We run a variety of outdoor based sessions, some open to the public; such as campfire cooking evenings and quiet retreats, and others for specific clientele groups, for example frontline staff, people with mild to moderate mental health difficulties and women who have experienced domestic violence.

Our aims are to create opportunities to bond with the living natural world, develop curiosity, form friendships and share time in nature.

Why We Do:

As a result of connecting with green space around us we become calmer and more contented people. The difficulties of the day may be forgotten and you can ’take your mind off’ as you lie in a hammock under the tree canopy.

The ties we develop with others and with nature itself form new communities which strengthen our reserve, resolve, and resilience.
