Nature Playgroup

Nature Playgroup has been running for the past 5 years at Chyan Community Field in Halvasso, near Penryn.  It is run by Alice Wall who set it up to give her boys and the wider community a space to play outdoors with their children. 


It has now grown into a wonderful weekly, term-time group for children aged 0-5 and their carers.  During the 2 hour session families can play in the mud kitchen, help pick wild food and herbs for tea, build a fire, adventure through willow tunnels and be creative with the seasonally themed activities.

Previously a drop in session, we have now decided to temporarily change to a booking only policy.

This is due to the restrictions put in place during Covid but we see this as a positive step towards building a stronger, consistent group.  There are currently 8 space bubble availble for this 6 week half term.  If there is considerable demand, we may run an additional group.

These sessions are open to members of the public on a sliding scale of pricing to try and keep our sessions affordable and inclusive. As a non-profit organisation we strive to offer a few funded spaces for people who would really benefit from nature connection but may not be able to afford to.  Attending and paying full price for a sessions means we can continue to fund our work and help make nature connection for well-being more mainstream for healthcare in Cornwall.
