Our Woodland Days are available to schools and local groups. We can deliver a range of curriculum subjects in a very stimulating, ancient woodland. If you want to take your children outside the classroom to learn and discover more, click below.
Wilder Life Wellbeing CIC are delighted to have received an incredibly generous donation for their Wild Vision Project, a forest school specifically for children with a visual impairment, after the comedian Adam Buxton gave his time for free to put on a fundraising performance at The Brighton Dome on 28th July 2023.
The event was the brainchild of Jay Law, dad to one of the children with a visual impairment who attends the Wild Vision project, and project manager extraordinaire. It was a brilliant evening and Wilder Life Wellbeing CIC would like to say a huge thank you to both Jay, who organised, and Adam, who made everyone laugh!
