Brief Description of Organisation

Since early 2013 we have been taking groups of children and adults out in an inspiring natural environment and giving them chance to find their own special connection that will stimulate curiosity, relieve tension, bring a sense of peace and connectedness, and open the door to the deep inner missing link that is their ancestral birthright; a sense of ease in the outdoor environment.

Think about EcoWild as your partner in nature.


Since early 2013 we have been taking groups of children and adults out in an inspiring natural environment and giving them chance to find their own special connection that will stimulate curiosity, relieve tension, bring a sense of peace and connectedness, and open the door to the deep inner missing link that is their ancestral birthright; a sense of ease in the outdoor environment.


The constant reports of record temperatures, wildfires, floods and droughts in the world today tell us that climate change is happening now. We are living with ever faster change, both technological and biological.


We will need to draw on our incredible human capacity for creativity, resilience and cooperation to meet challenges ahead. Compassion and self awareness are at the heart of finding our courage to create our best future. It is widely known that our wellbeing and resilience is deeply intertwined with that of the natural world, and that there is deep intuitive intelligence available to us through our nature connectedness.


Increasingly we as a species are divorced from the environment in which we spent hundreds of thousands of years evolving. Mental health problems and chronic illness are highest in technologically developed countries. Peer reviewed research studies prove the link between access to natural environment and wellbeing in all its measures; including better physical health, lower crime, less domestic violence, less need for pain relief post surgery, optimised mental health.


Children are encouraged and supported to make their own choices …

and to follow their innate curiosity in the diversity and complexity of the natural world. We recognise the importance of free play and want them to spend time on what interests them, while having chance to expand their skills and understanding. Through this they develop

  • Strong social skills

  • High self esteem

  • Confidence in their abilities

  • Their knowledge of boundaries – physical and emotional

  • The ability to identify and manage risk

  • Independence

  • Their knowledge and understanding of nature as they follow the changing seasons

  • Communication and language

  • Physical ability

  • Increased vocabulary stimulated by new experiences

  • Ways of working together cooperatively

Adults are facilitated to experience the best sense of themselves…

through the stimulating effects of natural light, companionable activities, elemental experiences making fire, foraging, feeling the weather and noticing seasonal change in a beautiful woodland.


We offer activities which may provide new skills and a sense of achievement, or may simply be a way of stilling the mind by keeping the hands busy.


In addition, facilitated approaches to nature connection including mindfulness, Deeper Nature sessions and other practices guide participants into greater benefit from their relationship with the living world.

EcoWild’s values include…

  • Having fun within a responsive nurturing environment

  • Being participant-led

  • Having positive relationships

  • Encouraging creativity

  • Being environmentally sensitive

  • Professionalism

  • Honesty and accountability

  • Openness
