Woodland well-being and Adult Forest School
Nature connects runs a selection of one off and regular sessions in various natural locations around Cornwall. We currently run 6 week programmes of nature connection for emotional and mental wellbeing. This programme consists of a weekly 2-3 hour (depending on season) group session and runs throughout the year at a woodland near Camborne and one near Truro. More information about our upcoming programme can be found at the bottom of this page.
Our one off sessions are seasonally themed around different aspects of nature and are a fun and refreshing experience of day long or half day events.
Our regular sessions will contain a variety of nature connection activities to improve connection to yourself, others and the natural world.
By signing up and attending our regular sessions you will get the full benefits of nature connection for well-being. Sarah and Alice your guides follow the 5-pathways to Nature Connection created from research by the University of Derby proven to enhance emotional wellbeing through creation of reciprocal relationships between humans and nature. You will come away with new personal connections, friends and inspiration through new knowledge of the natural world.
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 session means we can continue to fund our work and help make nature connection for well-being more mainstream for healthcare in Cornwall.
