Community Roots

Community Roots Events are designed to support family groups, they will be structured so that participants will take part in age and ability appropriate seasonal games and crafts.


Each day will involve a community conservation task, in which everyone can participate within their capacity, such as big beach/woodland cleans and collaborative habitat restoration, Foraging and Bushcraft Skills. Learning that wilderness and well-being are linked, participants will take part in conservation activities appropriate to the location.
