…Inspired by nature

…using nature to improve lives

We use the full bounty of nature to provide us with inspiring and creative activities.  Our activities are based around the seasons of the year – so there is always something different to do and create.

Each day is varied, and can include

  • physical tasks such as conservation work, forestry or gardening;
  • cooking activities using fruit and vegetables from the kitchen garden, or wild foods from the estate;
  • wildlife watching and monitoring, from badgers through to worms – it is all fascinating!
  • artistic crafts such as making decorative items from natural materials;
  • heritage countryside crafts such as coppicing or hedgelaying;
  • construction crafts such as making bird and hedgehog boxes, or boxes for our food box scheme;
  • stories, photography, painting…. and so much more!
