My life has changed with this training. I feel more empowered, confident and me and my family are so much happier.
There is always lots of nice things to do like playing games, telling stories, making art using natural materials, learning about conservation, making friends and the most important spending time in nature learning so many incredible skills, surrounded by nice and friendly people.
Our son has severe autism and it is very difficult to go out with him as he gets upset. Doing this training and bringing the skills home has been trully life changing. The activities are amazing and being able to use them back home with my family has trully changed our lives.
I always look forward to go to Balerno Community Woodland and learn new skills. I cannot wait to be there again and again.
We are very grateful that this project at the PHC is by donate what we can. This gives us possibility to attend every session.
Nature Connection training is great for whole families. By learning the skills we parents can spend time with our children in a really interesting and nice way. No need to spend money that we don't have, because we have nature and the skills we learn here!
