Forest schools are running around the world. They support kids to explore and experience nature for themselves in a playful, creative, empowering way that helps them develop confidence, mindfulness, and joy. There’s more info here.
people at Global Generation and the school sessions at the Transition Town Tooting Community Garden. The experience of seeing how young people come alive when they’re empowered to playfully discover their connection to nature reminded me of adventures when I was young and the things I learnt. I used to work as a teaching assistant and more recently when I’m not freelancing as a project manager, I voluntarily manage FoodCycle Wandsworth in Tooting, and have fun with creative projects with my site welovetooting.com.
As well as an outdoor first aid course, I’ve done the level 3 forest school leader training (these sessions will help me do my assessment). I also have an enhanced DBS (previously enhanced CRB check). Risk assessments are completed on all work and the project is fully insured.

I live near Tooting Bec tube and we are often exploring/climbing trees on tooting common. We are very much the outdoor types. However, my son is only 6 and just outwith your age catchment. Great idea though. Well done. Will definitely keep in mind.
Thank you for your support Mairi. It’s lovely to hear about your adventures on Tooting Common! I’m hoping that if all goes well I’ll be able to accommodate younger and older adventurers in the not too distant future so I’ll let you know if that happens. Thank you again!
