For Nature, Families and the Future

There is nothing better than watching parents learning alongside their children

1597815434_10224cef-5581-4a57-ab40-39a9db5a3869_1_105_c.jpegWe are a group of people and businesses that want to create new woodlands in as many places as possible in order to meet our aims of helping the environment, to create opportunities for families to enjoy nature, and to create learning opportunities.

1598011749_learning.jpgMany woodland based businesses are having huge success running woodland activities for Families, children, and adults but are generally in the position where they do not own the woodland that they use and are therefore restricted in what they can do and we want to help them.

1597816342_0ad41651-de62-43b9-9572-567044540f63_1_105_c.jpegActivities such as Bushcraft, Yoga, target sports, bird watching, woodland husbandry, willow weaving, wood carving, and traditional skills to name but a few will all be on offer but may differ slightly at each venue.

The serenity of a woodland setting can have a positive effect on mental health and a large part of what we do is aimed at mental wellbeing. Activities such as wood carving, willow weaving, and leatherwork are a great way of relaxing while engaging in a fun activity.


The land that we purchase will be offered to woodland based activity businesses to help them to serve people in their area and they will be the stewards of the woodland with the responsibility for the upkeep.

So here is an opportunity for you that will leave a legacy for our children and our children's children and can have a positive impact on thousands of people, nature, and the environment.

We are looking to purchase parcels of land between 6 and 10 acres and have already identified a suitable piece of land in North Yorkshire. Once this one has been established we will look at Scotland.

The Governments 50 million trees plant by 2050
The government's lofty goal of planting 50 million trees by 2050 is falling behind and needs more landowners to take up the slack and plant more trees. We hope to help achieve that goal
