Free lunch! Free boots! Free nature courses for BAMEs

We have amazing parks and woodlands all around us. How often do we get out into them?

Wild in the City is running Nature Connectors, starting next week, to explore this question and get more people into nature.

It’s an opportunity to be part of a group of people exploring potential barriers to accessing green and wild spaces for people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, and overcoming them through fun and informal outdoor experiences.

Over six short day sessions you’ll learn, and have a laugh in the great outdoors – walking, sharing food around the fire, making crafts with natural materials.

The course is totally free thanks to Croydon Council.

The course will run from 10am until 2.45pm on consecutive Fridays from September 22 in parks all over the borough.

We’ll give people the skills and confidence to go out and enjoy nature in Croydon’s beautiful parks and woodlands and then pass on that confidence and those skills to their friends, families, neighbours and communities.

Travel costs are funded, and there’s free wellies and waterproofs, free organic food and plenty of tea and talk over the camp-fire.

There are a limited number of places remaining available.
