Nurtured by Nature

This course explores our well-being through practical learning about sustainability.

We will learn about sustainability in the widest sense; looking at easy and achievable ways we can sustain our environment, our relationships and of course ourselves.

Our facilitators will introduce learners to permaculture-based forms of agriculture and horticulture; including growing our own food and looking after chickens, pigs, sheep, geese and bees.

You will work mainly outdoors, learning new skills and develop team working and communication skills. You will also be able to learn about sustaining yourself as we learn about healthy diet and lifestyles and developing your own emotional and social intelligence.

Cheers on behalf of myself and all at Space for the great sessions we’ve been attending up on the farm. It’s been really enjoyable, fun and most importantly, really beneficial for the service users.

I’ve never seen [attendee] open up and engage in group conversation as much as he has on your course. Also, learning new physical work skills and improving on the skills he already has been very beneficial.

In all honesty, in over 2 years of working with and knowing [attendee], I’ve never seen him open up, or converse so much. It was really great to see how he took to the group share sessions and got involved, and was willing/happy to get involved. I feel this is a great credit to the environment you have created.
