Over the next few weeks we will design weekly nature-based activities that can be used to help your health and well-being over this difficult time. They have been designed so that they can be done inside, in a garden or park. We'd love to hear from you if you make use of them.

Rose Flower

We have been inspired by the roses in early blossom because of the fine weather this spring. We challenged the members of one of our projects to write a poem by each contributing a line of verse. We put it together and another member of the group set the words to music. You can hear their song and see the photos of roses that they each contributed here.
