A qualified Forest School leader, Johanna has 10 years of experience of guiding children in outdoor activities, both in woodlands and schools. She has a degree in history and is also a professional Forest Bathing guide and Integrative Forest Therapy Practitioner. She adores helping children to connect with nature, and traditional ways, discover what’s around them, and engage in the many fun and inspiring nature based activities Forest School offers.

Johanna would be delighted to come to your school or meet in any suitable, accessible outdoor location. Programmes can be designed to suit your class and interests.

Forest school has a child led ethos, allowing children time to connect with nature in their own way. The experiential activities can include nature based games, arts and crafts from natural resources, making natural dyes, simple bush craft challenges using hand drills and saw, learning traditional skills, clay creatures, scavenger hunts, tracking, den building, seasonal crafts, natural cordage, song, fire lighting skills, foraging, sensory activities and nature meditations.

Workshops can be held throughout the year, allowing children to experience the different seasons and weather. This long-term programme really benefits children as they build confidence and resilience through learner inspired, hands on experiences in an outdoor setting. The wide range of activities builds their connection to the natural environment.

Field Trip: to Woodstock Arboretum, Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny. This is a wonderful woodland location for Forest School activities with easy access, big car park and toilets.
