Here at The Birch Collective we have an exciting summer ahead with two fully funded programmes to refer to:
🌳 5 week Natural Build Project at our weekly Fresh Air Thursday Sessions
🌳 Residential 5 day, 4 night Camp Birch
Green woodworking is a traditional way of building which uses wood that has been freshly cut and hand tools which don’t require electricity. This group is suitable for complete beginners or those who want to add to their existing knowledge. You are welcome even if you have never held a tool before! It will be a supportive and non pressured environment where young people are also welcome to just come, watch, enjoy the garden and meet some new people.
To sign up and for more information, please click here and we will get in touch directly with the young person to talk about their needs.
We are now accepting referrals for Camp Birch, where we will be camping for 5 days in 50 acres of private woodland with beautiful views over the Somerset Levels. All applications need to be in by the 11th July.
For more information on camp please see the attached document.
To make a referral please fill in the referral form attached and email it back to email@example.com
And as always, Fresh Air Thursdays continues to run all year and anyone is welcome. Please fill in a referral form if you have someone to refer and we will get directly in touch with them.
Who are these groups for?
Anyone age 16-25 who:
🌿 Would benefit from time spent outside with other young people
🌿Is struggling to engage with study or work
🌿Has mental or physical health struggles

Please get in touch if you have any questions about any of these offers and as always, we are very happy to have a chat or come in to talk to your team. I am on annual leave until the 7th June and I will answer any emails then.
