Elders Well-being in the woods 2023

Last day of term 2022

Welcome to Elders Wellbeing in the woods 2023. Our third year of this successful venture, this sponsored by Heritage Lottery and Pargiter Trust.

In between we had our wonderful Friends of Kaliwoods which planted a whole hedgerow helped with Chris, in the photo.

If you’d like to join us from March 16th you’d be most welcome. We’ll meet every Thursday from 12noon for light lunch cooked over the fire, to work or play from 1 to 3 pm. Please email to book or for more information.

We’re in our 3rd year!

As the sap starts to rise, we will be exploring our senses, ensuring our well-being with our connections, our circles, singing, weaving, meandering, connecting to our woodland heritage, and planting seeds of trees of the future.

The team includes Kally, Rachel, Jo, Nikki and Lesley and a rich assortment of artists, musicians, and tree people.

Address : Kaliwood, Beccles Road, Holton, IP19 8NQ. If you need transport to get to us, let us know we may be able to hep.

We started with an 8 week prototype which was so successful we have not stopped since. Working with the support of the Pear Tree Fund, mixing elders with children from other tribes, we’ve had a blast. Here is some of our story.
