Bryony from North East Wilds CIC just dropped off 15 of these amazing windowsill grow kits to support some of the women we’ve been working with in Chopwell to bring the outdoors in, since we can’t deliver our monthly gatherings at the moment. So beautiful and such attention to detail! I’ll be delivering locally on Friday along with food parcels from The Pickle Palace. So grateful to have such wonderful women to work with at the moment. 💓 🌱 🍅 🌶

Difficult to know what the right thing to do is at the moment. If you are local to Prudhoe we are still offering our forest school area at Dukes Hagg for your private single family use. We hope it offers a safe way of accessing the outdoors. Remember the rules especially as you walk along the bridlepath as it seems to be busy along there at the moment. 2m distance or use the path to the right that runs parallel through the woods instead. Take hand wash or sanitiser. Only take advantage of this if your household is symptom free. Donations will help our small social enterprise survive beyond this crisis but if your household has taken a financial hit then we are happy to share what we have with you for free if it makes life a little healthier. Well let you make the call as to how much this opportunity if worth. Book here. New form so please complete the form again even if you went over the past fortnight. Stay safe everyone. We are reviewing daily following public health guidance. Stomping-grounds.org/book

If you have access to trees during your daily outdoor exercise, these are really clear and well put together ID guides for children and adults alike.
This is definitely worth a reshare - 2 years ago at Brockwell with Saturday Clubbers and who could forget the mud slide?! Sound on 😆 www.facebook.com/forestschoolnortheast/videos/2078049295809491/
A bit of fun from Scotswood!
How gorgeous is this? One of our regular pre schoolers, missing our Monday singing so sending us the tractor song virtually 🥰
