The Great Outdoors Project:
helping you to thrive in nature
We know from independent research and the testimony of our own participants, that connecting people with nature as part of a group in an outdoor activity or an indoor workshop is a great way to improve emotional and physical wellbeing, reduce anxiety, create social connections and learn about both ourselves and the natural world.
The Great Outdoors Project offers adults in Kirklees the chance to take their first steps into nature on our taster courses; to explore their relationship with the outdoors on mindful walks and through the direct experience of open spaces; to interact and contribute on practical tasks at our Community Allotment; to express themselves creatively using eco-crafts, natural art, and photography and to be active and enjoy themselves by walking and running in the biggest gym possible.
"This is my favourite
fplace to walk. I love
"This is my first time growing
fplants on my own... it's
"It's really opened my eyes
fto how much fun it is to
fgrow things from seeds."
