What you'll learn in this nature class:

Take time to improve your health, reduce your stress, and experience pleasure while on a guided leisurely walk in nature on the farm. This is time to nurture yourself, to relax, engage your senses, and bathe in the pleasures of your surroundings. On these wellness walks you will be introduced to fun, deep ways of connecting with nature that can dramatically increase the benefits of being outside. Attend this series of walks to learn these skills so that you can apply them to your everyday life.

This will be a slow and quiet walk through the property in grass and garden areas. You will be invited by your guide to engage with the environment and offered opportunities to share what you noticed. Awakening your senses through nature is a wonderful way to improve your own well-being so that you can be a better, more balanced partner, parent, caregiver, employee or employer. Time spent on yourself is well spent and well deserved!

Please dress comfortably and appropriately for walking, sitting on the ground, and moving through plants. You may bring a blanket/mat/pillow to sit on. Most of the walk will be under the canopy of mature trees, but depending on your sun sensitivity you may wish to have sunscreen and sunglasses or a brimmed hat. There may be mosquitoes and other biting insects, so you may choose to have insect repellent, netting, or other protection. Bring water and anything else you need for your comfort like a jacket, hat, or walking stick.

Phones and cameras are best left in your car. We want you to let go of responsibilities during your Forest Therapy walk and immerse yourself in the experience without distraction.

Please Note: Walks will run rain or shine, so please dress appropriately and bring appropriate gear. If terribly inclement weather, we will meet inside and have an alternate nature connection option. For colder days, we may also have a fire in the outdoor firepit for warming.
