As a nature-based mentoring-programme, the heart of the sessions connect participants to the land, each other, and to a supportive natural community. Our participants develop strong naturalist skills, wilderness awareness, earth living skills, creative thinking, gaining inspiration from the land. Forest School sessions foster creativity, awareness, confidence building, self-expression, satisfying participation in community, resilience, and stewardship.
The teen programme provides a space for young people to come together to learn new skills, chat, sing, play and just be, in a safe and welcoming outdoor space. We encourage learners to become mentors themselves, and provide opportunities for them to help out with younger learners as their skill set grows.
