Spending time outdoors and helping to nurture and conserve nature can have many benefits, including helping to reduce stress and anxiety, improving physical health, reducing loneliness and allowing people to feel connected to nature. As part of the Wilder Walkmill project we are encouraging people to spend some time outside in the woodland with us. We will be running regular morning wellbeing sessions throughout the year (usually on the second and third Tuesday of the month) where we will be doing a variety of activities including seed harvesting and planting, fire lighting, cooking, woodwork and arts and crafts, to name just a few.
When: Tuesday 9th January, 10am-12pm
Where: Walkmill Community Woodland (exact meeting location will be available upon booking)
What: We will be having a go at planting a small section of native hedgerow, and then going for a gentle walk around the woodlands with a stop off for teas & coffees (and maybe even a toasted marshmallow).
No experience is necessary as this will just be a gentle introduction to hedge planting.
