Wild Steps

It is important for our wellbeing that we are not always ‘doing’, and we give ourselves time to ‘be’. Sessions include simple health interventions that encourage us to tune into and notice our surroundings, and activities that manage the margins at the farm and the rich ecosystems that they support.

You will have the opportunity to develop a range of practical conservation skills for instance hedge-laying, tree and wildflower planting/sowing, building and construction and pond maintenance to care for a mixture of habitats on the farm. These activities are combined with mindfulness, natural crafts, campfire cooking, folklore and seasonal celebrations.

Find out more about Wild Steps in this blog post by course leader Jason Leck.

Run as a block of 6 structured sessions, the Wild Steps course is framed by the 5 Pathways to Nature Connectedness*: Contact, Beauty, Emotions, Compassion and Meaning. These sessions allow people to experience relaxation in a safe and supportive space, foster a sense of community and develop greater awareness of how our connectedness to other life benefits our own wellbeing.

Wild Days

If you have already been to the full Wild Steps course, are unable to commit to the full course at the moment, or want a taster, our Wild Days are one-off refuelling sessions, providing a boost to mood and general wellbeing.

  • Wild Days 2024: 1st March, 5th April, 3rd May, 7th June, 5th July, 9th August, 6th September, 4th October, 1st November & 6th December.

For both pathways a typical day is:

  • We meet between 11am – 3pm.
    We do a ‘check in’ & grounding.
    We grow our attention and connectedness with nature-based mindfulness, crafts, folklore, campfire cooking.
    We care for the hedgerows, wildflower areas, forest garden, pond and agroforestry.

If this sounds appealing to you, we would love to have you here!
