Join us to celebrate the Spring Equinox on Saturday 26th March!

Meet at Outdoor People Community Shop at 11am for a Family Wild Walk. We’ll explore some of our local greenspaces as we make our way to the Garden of Earthly Delights. From 12-3pm, we will have a big shared picnic and enjoy gardening and nature crafting at the community garden. And playing, of course!

Bring picnic foods for yourself to share and a mug or cup for a hot drink. Don’t forget to wear weather-appropriate clothing. 

The event is free. Everyone is welcome; invite your friends and neighbours.

Post-pandemic, winter is setting in, COVID-19 cases are rising again... We know getting outdoors regularly boosts our immune system and keeps us healthy. So, we are turning to our community to ask: how can we help ourselves feel good on the inside about getting outside everyday?

We are inviting Hackney residents to become members of a small research team to work together across four workshops to explore our experiences of getting outdoors in Hackney.

Workshop 1: Tuesday 23rd November 4-6pm

Workshop 2: Tuesday 30th November 4-6pm

Workshop 3: Tuesday 7th December 4-6pm

Workshop 4: Tuesday 14th December 4-6pm

Winter Solstice Celebration: Tuesday 21st December 4-8pm

All workshops will be held at Outdoor People Community Shop, 352A Mare Street, E8 1HR. Dinner will be provided!

Each adult will receive a £20 Retail Gift Card (of your choice). Each child will receive a magnifying glass, a Live & Learn First Aid Pocket Guide and a pair of Stance socks (the most comfortable socks ever!). All travel expenses will be covered.

Family Wild Walks, Hackney Wild Walks, Outdoor Families, wild walks -

Wild Walks – ‘adventures for children to take their adults on’ – are short walks of about 2km (taking about 2 hours), perfect for 3-7 year olds, and with lots of adventure and discovery for their adults and older siblings.

As a community, every two weeks, we go on adventures exploring our local green spaces in Hackney and nearby. The aim is to create an environment where children feel they have permission to play outdoors, connect with nature and have fun!

If you would like to join any of our Wild Walks please email beth@outdoorpeople.org.uk, and Beth - our Community Coordinator - will book you and your family in. It's free - all we ask is you pay it forward by taking a friend for a walk in the future...
