Help wheelchair users, explore the woods, roaming free, as we all should, help to buy, a wheelchair that, brings stolen wild nature back.

by KELLI-MARIE SELLWOOD in Chelmsford, England, United Kingdom

At the Woodland WOOM Project we are dedicated to earth healing, growing community food forests and reconnecting with our Great Mother Earth, who heals and nourishes all life.

We have remained open throughout this pandemic, planting trees, spreading seeds and providing the community spirit that is so desperately needed during these testing times.

Over the last few months we have noticed that volunteers, who use wheelchairs, are unable to access the rugged grassland and forest on our site. Neither can they access the surrounding ancient woodland of Danbury.

We believe that every person has a fundamental human need and right, to gain access to nature, and to experience nature, not simply by observing from a roadside or pavement, but to be able to truly explore the beauty and wonder of the natural wild landscape, up close and independently, if they choose to do so

If we can raise £10,295, we will be able to purchase a Trekinetic GTE Ultra Lightweight Powerchair. The motor in this chair allows the user to move around rugged terrain with ease, helping them to get active, explore and find peace in mother natures arms, regardless of their physical strength or ability to afford a chair that provides them with this level of freedom.

Any wheelchair using volunteer attending The Woodland WOOM Project, will be able to book their volunteering time slots in advance. Volunteers will then be provided with these off road 'wheels of freedom,' that will allow them to fully explore The Woodland WOOM Project and the stunning  surrounding forests of Danbury. 

Volunteers will help with tasks and workshops, such as collecting wood, foraging, planting trees and ultimately helping to grow a truly sustainable, self-sufficient, inclusive and supportive community space, with a deep connection to Magna Mata (The Great Forest)
