Have you noticed buds developing on the trees and bulbs coming up in your garden? Even in the depths of winter, the earth is preparing for spring! I’ve been preparing for spring too and have lots of exciting earth education activities to tell you about. 

Forest pre-school and allotment playgroup will be back in mid March.
Bookings open in early February, with current attendees given 1 weeks priority booking before we open to the waiting list and advertise further.

Last year some of the most popular sessions sold out in 24 hours!
So chat to your Muddy Boots buddies and be ready to book. I will email you again! 

Bookings are now being taken for our new group ‘Earth Art’ at Soft Touch Arts, starting on 5th Feb. This class is mainly indoors and we will be exploring our creativity through art, crafts and stories all inspired by nature. 

Also available to book now are family forest adventures and sisterhood women’s retreat days. These are a great way to have a wild day of playing and learning in the woods without having to commit to a full term.
