4th-24th August 2022
Outdoors workshops for young people with learning difficulties and their families to reconnect with nature.
Families will enjoy nature-based activities including growing vegetables, creating natural habitats for birds & insects, learning basic outdoor crafts & preparing fresh food to eat. During each session we will all harvest and prepare vegetables for a shared lunch of produce from the field.
These workshops are a unique opportunity to be part of our educational activities and give children the chance to learn and appreciate nature, food and the world around them.
