Friday 11th September - Twilight Bushcraft and Wildlife watch with Inside Out Forest School
A session of Woodland Wellbeing with the amazing folk from "Inside Out Forest School." This is everything that I and my kids, and I think most of you need as it promises to reduce anxiety, depression, relieve stress and lower blood pressure, improve sleep, build confidence, resilience and self esteem, increase attention and concentration etc etc.
Set in Ballington Woods which are just beautiful, there will hammocks swinging, a bell tent with cushions and blankets (and blind folds! - I'll keep an eye on the kids), self guided walks in the woods to discover the hanging glockenspiel, play area and woodland creatures, mindfulness activities, 'Hapa zome' which is the Japanese art of printing using flowers and plants, clay and collages. We will heat vegetable soup and make damper bread on the campfire. Sounds bliss!
This event runs from 6 til 8pm and is accessed by an uneven footpath but we can give anyone a helping push. This event is free, though donations are welcome
