Try something new this June! | Green Social Prescribing taster sessions

22nd March 2022

Festival of Nature has joined forces with Natural England and NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire to organise a series of Green Social Prescribing taster sessions across Bristol and Bath.

This is a great opportunity to try a new activity, or visit a new site, during this year’s Festival of Nature. Browse the sessions on offer sign up to explore some of our beautiful green spaces while walking, improve your gardening skills or even have a go at open water swimming . You could visit a local woodland, community farm or park or even use your artistic side by capturing nature on a sketch pad or camera.

There are so many wonderful ways to connect with nature across our area but with our busy lives we often do not take the time to do it.

Do something for you this June and sign up for one of the 24 taster sessions we are putting on as part of this year’s Festival, 10 - 18 June 2022.
