Running dates



Watercress Farm, Bristol Road, Wraxall, North Somerset BS48 1NE.


10am – 2pm

A year long closed nature connection group for 14 – 18 year olds held in partnership between the Belmont Estate and OTR Nature Works.

The group will meet monthly starting from September and will conclude with a two-day camp. Sessions will include cooking seasonal food over the fire, engaging in nature connection activities, practising nature-based arts and crafts, talking circles and bushcraft. As well as working together with other young people, you will also set your own personal goal or intention to work on through the seasons.

Where will it happen?

Watercress Farm, Bristol Road, Wraxall, North Somerset BS48 1NE. We will organise travel to and from the farm, though this is to be confirmed. 

Watercress Farm has over 100 acres of rewilded fields, riverside meadows and woodland with free-range farm animals and abundant wildlife. There is a beautiful, secluded woodland base with a fire circle next to the river. In a world in which we are increasingly distant, Belmont is about being closer. Belmont weave the Principles of Nature into their ethos which are: health, interdependence, adaptation, the cycle, diversity, geometry and oneness.

This year-long group and camp is an amazing opportunity to find connection with and belonging to this piece of land and to each other.

If you’re interested in taking part come along to one of our taster sessions to see if it’s for you.
