Anyone …Acorns to Oaks Workshops

 This 90 minute or 60 minute workshop on Wednesday's and Thursdays are for

Parents/carers/grandparents  &  their  children to bond with you and others.

Building relationships is so important for both adults & children; it will create memories that will last forever. Building bonds with peers develops so much more than confidence, independence & 

self-esteem (although these are super important ) it develops kindness, compassion, respect & love. The holistic approach to learning, hand in hand with nature will develop this.

The Forest Approach will teach us to manage our risks, assess our boundaries, look after our earth & respect each other.


Forest workshops for age 16 plus and seniors will be based at ‘The Hut’ and local woodlands.
