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.
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
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.
I 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.
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.
