Woodland learning – a network circle

A gathering for woodland centres and teachers, to share learning and explore mutual support.

If you’re involved with a woodland learning centre, or teach in the woods, this is a rare chance to meet peers, share insights, and explore how we can help each other in this valuable work. The idea is to create an open space, hosted by Hazel Hill’s team, for us to use as we want. Possibilities could include:

  • Getting to know each other, and seeing if we constitute a sector or a network.
  • Sharing about what’s good and special in our woodland work, seeing what we can learn from each other.
  • Discussing scope for mutual support, for example joint funding bids, shared promotional activity?
  • Identifying where woodland learning may be headed: what new needs can we help to meet?

The hosting team will include:

Marcos Frangos, General Manager of Hazel Hill Trust, who manages our education programme, facilities and compliance policies, and leads some events.

Caroline Hukins, Development Manager of Hazel Hill Trust: a fundraising specialist who inputs to our education strategy, including on evaluation.

Joe Clark, Land Based Education Facilitator at Embercombe, Devon: an educator with long experience of establishing and running transformational learning programmes in nature.

Timings: From 7pm Sunday November 5, to 5pm Monday 6

Cost: Just £30 to include food and overnight accommodation. £20 non-residential.
