Nature Works is the name of the nature and horticulture-based wellbeing projects we run at OTR. At Nature Works we believe that connecting to people, place and planet is essential in supporting your health.


Please note that the Nature Works sessions have moved online throughout the pandemic and lockdown. You can sign up with the button above. Read more about OTR’s availability here.

Nature Works engages young people in a range of nature-based therapeutic practices and offers opportunities to take action to protect our planet – and feel hopeful for its future!

People of all ages say they get a great deal out of being outdoors. Spending time in beautiful, tranquil places is in itself very calming and stress-reducing. Alongside this, trying new things, gaining new skills and learning ways to relax in the outdoors can be hugely uplifting and provide an invaluable opportunity to improve our confidence, self esteem and resilience.

For now, our Nature Works sessions run on Zoom on Mondays from 6.30-8pm, for 18-25 year olds. You can sign up to these sessions using the button above.
