Forest Beginnings



I will be holding forest school sessions at St John’s School Kingston Upon Thames, starting January 2018. Currently they will be for specific students. The plan is to offer broader sessions across the school once funding is secured. We have a great site spread over 60m x 15m. It includes a purpose built shelter, a shed and even a working tap – as well as plenty of trees and bugs!

Yesterday was a great day as we had many volunteers help clear the site of anything that didn’t belong in a forest (a public footpath runs alongside and rubbish is often thrown/blown over the fence) in readiness for it’s first session. It was lovely to see the interest shown in the project. Here’s a little bit of fun video of the site being cleared.
