"The course was excellent and the trainers were very inspiring. I am now re-inspired to go back into practicing forest school."
Jennie, CPD Participant, 2019.
"I have been through a range of emotions from tears to sheer joy! I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The training has made me take a step back and look at how we can support children in their development rather than specific knowledge. I have loved every minute and feel totally inspired."
Sarah, Forest School Training Ireland, 2019.
"The Fire and Tools CPD was a great day! There was so much packed in and still space to accommodate our questions and needs. It was an inspiring day, ticking off some personal goals and leaving me hungry once more. Thank you!"
Heather Hadley, CPD participant, 2018.

"Thank you so much for a fantastic day in the woods on Friday - I loved it! The course was the perfect mixture of practical and theoretical (and also a little bit magical too!).  I loved thinking of plants in terms of directions and times of life."
Lucy Collins - Founder, Bee in the Woods, 2018
