Growth, Resilience & Outdoor Wellbeing
We have kept all our activities open for as long as possible but due to the unfolding situation regarding COVID-19, and recent Government advice, we have made the very difficult decision to temporarily suspend all our public forest/woodland sessions.
When we began GROW-Wellbeing Community Interest Company in 2018 it was with the social purpose of providing opportunities to improve children, young people and families' wellbeing through connection with the natural environment.
Through this difficult time, we hope to maintain contact with all our friends and supporters to continue to encourage that connection with the natural environment, and we have produced a free GROW Forest School Scrapbook for children to record and document their engagement with nature in practical, creative and knowledgeable ways throughout this enforced period at home. We will also be posting daily updates, ideas, practical craft and gardening activities through our social media pages.
Take care and hope to see you in the woods again before too long!
