Supporting people to connect with the natural world, learn new skills and build self-confidence

Our Nurtured By Nature programme allows local community groups from hard-to-reach audiences to experience the arboretum and connect with the amazing trees that grow here, through a range of activities designed to boost well-being and mental health.

These activities can include anything from learning traditional woodland management skills, to mindfulness based activities to campfire cooking! Where possible, we will tailor each visit to meet the individual needs and interests of your group.

Please note led activities are only open to groups located within a 10 mile radius of Westonbirt, The National Arboretum.
