September 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Monday, repeating until 16 September 2024

This is a 4 week programme designed to help improve confidence relating to maths and mental wellbeing, in a fun and practical way.

Sessions will be outdoor based with opportunities to grow in confidence, learn skills, demystify basic maths challenges, and negative feedback we may have been told about ourselves. As well as connecting with nature, food, the soil, and to have the opportunity to grow some beautiful plants at the same time.

Examples of activities include horticulture, orienteering, ecology, bushcraft, campfire cooking, and games.

Who is this programme suitable for?

This is a programme for participants 19 and above, due to funding guidelines. Participants need to be happy to be outdoors during the sessions, we will have sheltered space (potentially indoor) available if the weather is likely bad.
