What We Offer
Alice (left) and Sarah (right) are the founders of Nature Connects. Their journey together began in January 2020 when they realised their visions were united. Alice has been guiding people, families and children in nature for almost a decade and is a forest school practitioner, her passions lie in foraging, plant uses and bushcraft. Sarah has studied eco-psychology and learned first hand from tribal communities about nature connection, a passionate eco-warrior with an exceptional talent for guiding and understanding the ways Nature can benefit health and wellbeing.
We are excited to announce that we have a new director joining our team - Victoria Meincken has been running our nature playgroup over the last year and will be getting more involved with our adult groups this autumn as her and Alice embark on a Natural Academy Ecopsychology foundation year.
Nature Connects aims to make all it's sessions as accessible as possible, therefore for we offer funding for our essential programmes for health and wellbeing to those who can't afford it. We also work hard to ensure a future where nature for health becomes a sustainable and known option for people in Cornwall. If you would like to help support our aims we would be most grateful.

'I had a really great time, quite early on in the session I began to get a great sense of calm that I have been missing in my busy working life and living in the 'city'. I would 100% recommend to everyone.'
