For Individuals and Families
Our Community in Nature programme is for families, including young children as well as for individuals, promoting and developing positive health and wellbeing through the provision of a wide range of educational and social activities and opportunities in the woodland. The programme is by donation, it is great fun and children accompanied by their parent or guardian are included. "Nature is the giver, a true friend and sustainer"
Venue: Community Woodland: Cockburnhill Road, Balerno, EH14 7JB.

The Community in nature programme is by donation and the donation you give helps cover some of the core costs of the programme. If you are not able to give a donation, please talk to us, as this will not exclude you from participating. We would like the programme to be available to everyone.
The programme has been a great success and in 2012 we run 11 sessions. Between 20 to 25 people of all ages took part in each session.
We look forward to sharing a wonderful Community in Nature experience with you this year!
