The aim of our woodland workshops is to inspire children to develop a life long love of the natural world, and to open
their eyes to the opportunities it has to offer. Children are encouraged to respect the world around them and
learn woodland skills in an exciting and nurturing environment.

We're based in 14 acres of our very own ancient woodland with a mixture of broad-leaf and coniferous trees. Shelter is provided by our cosy 'Yurt in the Dirt' with compost toilets and cooking facilities.
