Parks in Mind

23 February 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Healthy parks, healthy YOU!

Join The Parks Foundation outdoors for some sociable and fun gardening, cheery nature conservation, cooking, stargazing, walks, and calm meditative activities. We’ll also be encouraging you to put the kettle on at home as, once again, we bring the outdoors indoors with virtual and nature-inspired arty and crafty adventures, astronomy sessions, gentle exercise, and guided meditation. So, wrap up warm and hunker down with us this winter.

Whittle by whittle – Zoom

An hour’s gentle and relaxing wood carving demonstration. Grab a cuppa and zoom in with green woodsman Mark Codling. Explaining the best woods to carve and how to prepare them, Mark takes us through the steps of how to start carving green wood into a spoon and other utensils. As Mark will tell us, carving wood is a great way to focus the mind and can be very meditative and calming. This is the first of a number of sessions for 2022, with the chance to join outdoor group wood carving sessions from the spring.
