We offer a unique blend of nature and community ties. We support local initiatives that bring the people of The Valley to our piece of nature so they can Run Wild, and we volunteer our time and forest to community initiatives and events, as well as provide a place for community to gather, explore and learn. From workshops in various earth friendly building techniques, to school excursions to learn about worms living in poop – we want to build a community of people who care about the world and the environment they live in. Without community we are lost in the woods – but combined we can find the
peace and strength that nature and community offers.
