The Natural Pathways Wellbeing Programme provides nature-based activities for people experiencing anxiety, depression, low mood and stress.
We run the sessions in 5 week blocks but this does not mean you need to commit to all the sessions – you can choose what feels right for you.
Activities offered each week are themed around 5 pathways to nature connectedness.
Senses – Tune in to nature through the senses. Sessions combine nature based mindfulness and practical activity, spending time fully experiencing nature with the senses.
Beauty – Take time to appreciate beauty in nature. Sessions include; natural crafts and wildlife walks, exploring other local nature reserves.
Emotion – Share the joy, wonder & calm spending time in nature brings with others. Sessions aim to join up with other Bathscape groups/volunteers helping nature recover in the local area.
Compassion – Care for nature by taking part in traditional conservation work on the farm. Sessions include, hedgelaying, habitat management, tree planting, wildflower meadow restoration.
Meaning – Share and celebrate the mystery, signs and cycles of nature and how natural spaces are special to us. Sessions include, bushcraft, outdoor cooking, folklore, traditional crafts.
Learn new skills, build confidence and lead a healthier life.
Every Thursday 10am – 2:30pm, Bath City Farm.
