Nature Practitioner


Creating connections and sharing information and resources so that

we all flourish - just like the Wood-Wide Web 

A fundamental shift is needed in the way we all live and work in order to create a regenerative, fair, healthy, and loving world where the future of our planet and the vast interconnected web of life is protected, where justice and dignity prevail for all, where communities are healthy, happy and safe, and where workplaces make employees feel good about themselves and their work. 


Those of us using nature-based or nature-inspired approaches are all doing our bit to help promote this shift - we're helping people to live and work differently in order to create a regenerative future for people, organisations, communities and the natural environment. 


By connecting with each other, sharing with each other, supporting each other, and learning from each other, we can amplify our impact and make even more of a difference, both individually and collectively. The Nature Practitioner Network aims to bring together trainers, facilitators and coaches who are using nature-based or nature-inspired approaches so that we can become stronger and more influential in our work. 


We all know that trees in a woodland grow bigger, stronger, and healthier through sharing information and resources with each other via the Wood-Wide Web, and these events are an opportunity for us to do the same.  This is a new and growing network, so  gatherings are initially being held online, but ideally we will also come together face-to-face at least once a year. 

Dates and themes for 2024:

Spring:      Living Systems - Friday 5th April, 10am-1pm

Summer:   Nature and Story - Friday 5th July, 10am-1pm

Autumn:    Permaculture - Friday 4th October, 10am-1pm

Winter:      Ecopsychology - Friday 13th December 10am-1pm

Cost:   £20 (incl. vat) 

Who is it for?

These gatherings are open to any facilitators, trainers, or coaches who use nature-based or nature-inspired approaches to help individuals, teams, or organisations to learn and grow.

Whether you're just starting out on your journey as a nature practitioner, or are an experienced leader in this field, you'll be made very welcome.

Our Next Gathering

Friday 5th July 10am-1pm, on Zoom


Our theme for this event will be Nature is Storytelling/Storytelling is Nature.  We'll have time time and space to get to know each other, a facilitated discussion about looking for stories in nature and how these fit into our nature-based work, plus a workshop from Stu Packer on the power of storytelling for connecting with the nature inside of us. Afterwards, for those who would like to stick around a bit longer, you can bring your lunch or grab a cup of tea and stay online for informal conversation and networking.


The programme will be as follows:

10.00am       Welcome and introductions/icebreaker

10.30am       Nature is Storytelling: Discussion facilitated by Nicki Davey, Saltbox

11.10am       Break

11.25am       Storytelling is Nature: Workshop facilitated by Stu Packer, co-author of The World is Storytelling

Storytelling is a natural human phenomenon. In this workshop, Stu will help us to explore what the terms storytelling and nature means to each of us and will explore the relationship between “self” and “nature” by using stories and storytelling techniques. On this journey, we will use storytelling as a key to unlocking our instinctive natural self, tapping into our own intuitive wisdom, and sharing this natural wisdom with others in order to bring tangible benefits to self, others, plants, animals, and the planet. This is in our nature – it is human nature: Storytelling is Nature.

12.55pm       Reflections

1.00 pm        Close and informal chats
