We are delighted that, after many months of negotiation, Eastleigh Borough Council planning office have approved the Outdoor Learning Centre planning application.

This brownfield site, a former garden centre, on Bishopstoke Road near Eastleigh town, will become an accessible green space where children, young people and families can engage with nature through structured learning opportunities and play.  

With a couple of classrooms, habitat areas, firepits, woodland shelters, poly tunnels, and pond dipping, this will become a ‘wild oasis’ in this urban area. Building on our forest school provision at Itchen Valley Country Park we will deliver curriculum linked activities; John Muir Awards and Asdan Short Course accreditations; 1:1 provision for excluded children; age appropriate stay and play open access sessions; forest school activity days and holiday clubs.

Sign up to follow our progress and support the fundraising campaign to raise the £300,000!
