About Us

We strongly believe in the collective’s ability to bring change. That, immediate actions in a small-scale setting can make impactful changes on the grander scale. We believe that it starts with us: human beings. But to bring about change we must nurture ourselves first; and doing so alongside heart-centered people is the fuel our body just might need. 

We were not meant to go through life alone.

A listening ear; a space that nurtures belonging & safety; and a place where play, curiosity, mindfulness & meaningful connections take place we believe is the best antidote! We want all to feel safe, be loved, feel listened to, and have a sense of belonging and respect when setting foot in Nature.

While we might be the Guides, Nature is the Healer & she provides the medicine.

Where Togetherness & Belonging amongst Nature is at the core of what we do.

We encourage people of all ages to get outdoors and to nurture their relationship with the Land, its history, and all living things through different learning opportunities.

We invite you to come as you are wholeheartedly and connect with others, with yourself, and with Land.

Our hope is that you feel completely safe to tend to your needs.

We are here to hold space for you in a small & intimate setting.

Our mission

To provide a small scale, yet impactful, connection-based experience to the community through different learning opportunities, aimed towards wellbeing & therapeutic practices in the outdoors.

 

This currently includes: Shinrin-yoku (Forest Bathing Therapy); Farm & Forest School for Children; Indigenous environmental learnings & discussions; The Hatching Experience (Farm-to-table principles); Mindfulness; Reiki Energy Healing; and Meditations. These, done by people with the knowledge & experience in their fields.

 

Additionally, we have previously offered Afro-Caribbean cultural gatherings, Lunar Groundings retreats, Nature Yoga, and educational learning opportunities on how to implement environmentally sustainable behaviors -  included foraging, bush crafting, small & meaningful steps on eliminating single-use plastics, green gardening, caring for smaller livestock, and more.

You can see what we're up to here
