If you go down to the woods today...

Wild Folk was founded by Amy Walsh, a Forest School Leader in-training with a background in environmental education and play work.

Amy loves being outdoors helping people to discover the magic in nature, build their confidence and learn skills to create a socially and environmentally-conscious society.


We are on a mission to enable people and communities to play, learn and grow together in the wild.


We do this by:

  • Creating space for people of all ages to play outdoors

  • Empowering people of all ages to learn skills and grow their confidence outdoors

  • Facilitating communities to build relationships and problem-solve through playful co-creation outdoors

At the heart of everything we do is a determination to be:

  • Kind

  • People-centred

  • Environmentally conscious

  • Creative


A little bit about me:

  • I’m training to be a Level 3 Forest School Leader with Jackie from Go Wild Education.

  • I’m a qualified Outdoor First Aider.

  • I hold a Level 2 Play Work certificate.

  • I studied Community-Engaged Learning and Education for Sustainable Development within my MSc Education Policy & International Development at University of Bristol.

  • I studied BSc Geography at University of Exeter.



  •  have delivered a range of engagement projects in the education, community and environmental sectors over the past 7 years.

  • I love being creative and experimenting with new ideas and collaborations.

  • My life revolves around nature: I have grown my own wildlife garden and allotment in Bristol.

  • When I’m not in the woods, you’ll usually find me drinking tea with my cat and rescue hens.
