North East Wilds is a not-for-profit organisation aiming to get people of all ages spending more time outdoors and immersed in nature to improve their mental health and wellbeing. We run long-term woodland wellbeing programmes, gardening and food growing projects that are evidence-based and community-led. 


We also run adventurous, social, creative and educational clubs and events for all ages based on the forest school model of outdoor experience.

We work on sites across the Newcastle and Gateshead: Jesmond Dene, Chopwell Woodland Park, St Anthony's Allotment (Walker), Ouseburn Allotments, Saltwell Park, and others.   

We love working collaboratively, so if you'd like to work with us on a bespoke project or event, please get in touch.
