Earth Walk is family friendly walk around beautiful Appley Park, Ryde, Isle of Wight for IsleWalk17.
The walk involves a mixture of activities designed to put you in touch with the natural surroundings and yourself.
The walk will be led by experienced outdoor leader and Goodleaf tree climbing instructor Matt Ostler.
Our Earth Walk is a fun, sensory way of engaging in the natural world through unusual activities to help us all get in touch with the living environment around us. We'll take a short walk in the park. Using activities such as 'Sky Walk', ‘Six of one and half a dozen of the other’ and ‘Lilliput trail' we'll be trying to reawaken the individual senses and sharpen our perceptions in order to 'live more harmoniously and joyously with the natural world’.
If this sounds like something you and your family would enjoy, please come along!
