WHO WE ARE


Our Mission

To deliver sustainable lifelong learning activities for adults that involve motivating experiences of our natural world and help them develop the skills needed to create, restore, maintain and improve places for wildlife and people.

What we do

We work with others to provide courses and workshops about ecology, conservation, countryside skills and rural crafts that are benefit to or inspired by habitats and wildlife. 


We provide ecological advice and share ideas for creating, restoring, maintaining and improving habitats for wildlife and conserving natural and historic landscapes.


Where possible we seek to do this recovering, re-using and recycling materials to make features, homes and ponds that attract nature into gardens or green spaces.

Wilding

Wilding is a concept of making space for nature and allowing wildlife back to the landscape. It is restoring natural processes to our countryside, reviving degraded habitats, reintroducing depleted or missing species and encouraging ecosystems to become self-regulating again.


Nature is comprised of an intricate .web of interactions that enrich our lives, help nourish the natural environment and give our planet a greater capacity to cope with human impact. We encourage students to give wildlife a chance and relax control so that they make space for nature.

Outdoor learning

We promote outdoor learning as a way to discover, engage, learn about and connect with the natural world and each other.


Your learning will involve the transformation of knowledge, skills, experience, attitudes and behaviours through direct engagement with the outdoors.


We help individuals, groups and families reflect and learn about themselves, each other and the natural world. Your motivating experiences with us are a catalyst for your learning, personal development and well-being.

Our Vision is...

"You have an outdoor learning experience that motivates you to achieve your full potential and develop new skills so that you can make space for nature in your gardens, green spaces and local environment."
