Why donate?

“We all know magic things happen when The Garden Classroom is around…”

Our dedicated team has been working since 2008 to bring transformational nature connection experiences to all.

A one-off or regular donation of any amount helps us to continue to meet community need together.

Supporting parents and carers and encouraging outdoor and messy play through free and fun Little Explorers sessions for under 5s

Teaching children outside of the classroom in hands-on and illuminating curriculum-linked lessons

Inspiring a love of learning and of nature through weekly urban forest school sessions for class groups

Building confidence, relationships and resilience in urban school children with life-changing countryside residentials

Connecting over 55s through wellbeing walks and craft sessions for creativity, conversation and friendship

Improving urban green spaces for us all to enjoy through community gardening projects

Training adults in Forest School education, beekeeping and other outdoor skills so we can amplify the physical and mental health benefits that a connection with nature can bring

Recurring Donation

Recurring donations allow us to plan for the future and commit to future projects that allow children to truly connect with nature.

One-off Donation

One-off donations are perfect for people who can't commit to a monthly donation but want to help connect children and young people with nature.
