Spring is on its way, trees are in bud, and our woodlands are coming alive after their winter rest. In Wales this March and April Coed Lleol (Small Woods Wales) are hosting nine local Spring events to celebrate our thriving Actif Woods Wales programme.
Taking place across Wales, these free events will include woodland workshops, tasty campfire cooking, inspiring stories of change and more. Activities will vary in each local area, and may cover the themes of health and wellbeing, woodland skills and woodland conservation. There will also be an opportunity for individuals and community organisations to share ideas and help shape the future of woodland health and wellbeing activities locally.
We are welcoming people who are already involved in our Actif Woods Wales programme, and those who wish to get involved (e.g. new participants, public health professionals, job centres, carer organisations, woodland managers). Where possible activities will be co-led by Coed Lleol staff, partner organisations and existing Actif Woods Wales participants.
