Morning Wellbeing Sessions at Walkmill Community Woodland

9th April 2024

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 & crafts, to name just a few.

When: Tuesday 9th April, 10am-12pm

Where: Walkmill Community Woodland (meet at Moresby Rugby Club)

What: We will go for a gentle walk around the woodland to look for and forage some natural materials, such as leaves and flowers. We will then use air-drying clay to create nature weaving hearts and pinch pots. We will also press the flowers and leaves we have collected ready to decorate our pots with.

No experience is necessary and we will provide all the tools and materials.
