A summary

We are really pleased to be back again this summer with more HAF provision for adventurous and enquiring teens in our woodland at Glottenham Farm Although we run small groups, with only 12 children, we have big ambitions, and often pack in so much more than anyone expected.

Emma Salmon·Earth based education and arts
We have been running Forest School at Glottenham for nearly 10 years, working with local schools, Home education and Scout groups and more recently with ESCC This is our second year of HAF provision Amongst our team we have 2 qualified level 3 forest school practitioners, a Medical herbalist, a Dr of archaeology, artists, craftspeople, science under graduates, and between us many years of environmental, conservation and outdoor learning experience. We have seen first hand how engagement with nature has a huge beneficial effect on people both young and old, and really enjoy how tech and social media quickly get forgotten as they get engrossed in what they are doing.

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

These courses are free and funded by ESCC for those who qualify. However our funding depends upon numbers attending, so please, if you are unable to attend, cancel as soon as possible so that the place can be taken up by another participant
