Autumn 2023

Fruit and nuts are ripening, leaves are turning, the weather is cooling. Autumn is a beautiful time in the woods. A time to prepare to hunker down for the winter, telling stories round the fire, cooking up hearty meals with foraged food. 

Autumn programmes are for children aged 6 to 12. Older children and teenagers are always welcome to join in and help out if they wish.
