Helping us get the word out!


We are starting up our free weekly land based skills and nature based wellbeing sessions for 16-25 year olds again and I was wondering if you could put it out to your service users? If this is possible here is a bit of text you could use and I have attached the poster.

The Birch Collective run Fresh Air Thursdays (Thursdays 1-5pm), a free land skills and nature based wellbeing group for 16-25 year olds.

These easy-going and supportive sessions offer a mix of practical, seasonal tasks, alongside relaxing and chatting by the fire. Fresh Air Thursdays are ideal for anyone who would benefit from spending some time outside in a beautiful place with other young adults and are keen to learn some new skills.

Activities include:

Gardening and food growing for wildlife

Natural building (pizza oven construction, building with green timber)

Natural Craft (willow and clay work, whittling and wood carving)

Fireside Cookery (learning to prepare, maintain and cook on open fires)

Nature-based stress reduction techniques


Strawberry Lane Community Garden, St George.


Every Thursday 1-5pm from Thursday 30th March until November

Who for:

This group is ideal for anyone age 16-25 who:

· Would benefit from time spent outside with other young people
