EcoWild aims to engage people with the natural environment through woodland based activities including tool & craftwork, natural art, fire making and cooking, wildlife exploration, shelter making, imaginative play and much more. Since early 2013 we have been taking groups of children and adults out in an inspiring natural environment and giving them chance to find their own special connection that will stimulate curiosity, relieve tension, bring a sense of peace and connectedness, and open the door to the deep inner missing link that is their ancestral birthright; a sense of ease in the outdoor environment.
We have been commissioned to deliver sessions for the B&NES Wellbeing College, Mencap, the Carers’ Centre, the American Museum in Britain, St Mary’s Timsbury and Sirona. We have a working relationship with other organisations who have an overlap of interest, including Second Step, St Mungos, DHI, All Hallows’ School and several other key partners.
Successive well researched studies highlight the vital importance of reconnecting to the natural world. Some of these are linked below if you want to know more.
