Connecting with Nature to enhance Health & Wellbeing
Our mission is to promote access to the countryside and to provide a community resource for all, in such a way that people can connect with nature and get active in a green environment as a way of boosting physical and psychological wellbeing and to encourage healthy sustainable lifestyles.
We can provide rural activities for individuals and groups either at our base at Beardwood Farm or at your own venue. If you have a great idea for a project and would like advice on how to go about setting it up or about funding opportunities, then please contact us.

Beardwood Natural Living Project is a Community Interest Company (CIC), a none profit organisation run for the benefit of the local community. We are grateful to receive any donations to support our current projects or to improve client facilities.

We also welcome volunteers who can offer various skills such as gardening, animal care, conservation work, farm maintenance, fund raising, admin, marketing and IT skills amongst others.
Student work experience opportunities may be available.
