EcoWild is a Community Interest Company and therefore not-for-profit. Its aim is to enhance people’s relationship with their environment, creating inspiring opportunities for engaging with the natural world. In this way the seeds are sown for a long term fascination in the complexity and beauty of nature and a sense of stewardship towards the environment.

What is Forest School? ‘An inspirational process that offers children, young people and adults regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a local woodland environment’ ‘To promote the values of wisdom, compassion, integrity and justice through experiential learning in a natural outdoors environment’

What is Eco therapy? The name often given to the green agenda for mental health whereby people are engaged in greenspace-based activities as part of their treatment programme. One study found that for 90 per cent of people involved in a green exercise programme the combination of nature and exercise was the most important factor in determining how they felt.
