Our Forest Folk days promote mental health and well-being through spending time in nature, building confidence through learning new skills such as traditional fire-lighting and green woodwork, foster friendships through supporting a like-minded community and learning to self care through cooking healthy food together on an open fire, taking the time to reflect on your experiences and celebrating your unique qualities and successes.
Our sessions are open to anyone with mental health concerns. If you know someone who could benefit from joining our group, get in touch via email: or message/call: 07713642169.
