Watering Girl Bisley Allotment CopyrightDeborahRoberts P1030497 HiRes300dpiA new study into the impact of outdoor activity on children's wellbeing suggests that being outside can help youngsters feel more confident and capable of trying new things. Many of the children who took part in the study also believe that spending time in nature can give their school work a boost, according to the report.

The Wildlife Trusts, which commissioned the study, said the findings show that children experience "profound and diverse benefits" through having regular contact with nature, and that every child should have the chance to "experience the joy of wildlife in daily life." Contact with the wild improves children's wellbeing, motivation and confidence.

At Stroud Valleys Project, our well-established Wild Classrooms project works with schools, community groups and families to provide support and resources to encourage more outdoor activities for children including planting and growing, identifying different species and having a better understanding of nature in our area.Some of the resources we have created have been so popular, we have decided to make them available to a wider audience through our eco shop. These include posters and themed calendars – please come and have a look!

The shop also has a variety of other products to support outdoor activities such as identification guides and books as well as gardening gifts such as paper potters, seeds and tools. We also have our range of wildlife themed Christmas cards and a range of gifts for all ages. While you’re in the shop, don’t forget to buy raffle tickets! All our prizes reflect our ethos of being as good as we can be from an environmental point of view. We have an ‘eco’ duvet from Saymor beds which is made from recycled plastic bottles, and native trees from Landcare Trees based in Yate who grow native trees from seed.
