In July I visited Windsor Hill Wood, a woodland shelter in Somerset. It was somewhere I’d been meaning to visit for sometime, since coming across Tobias Jones’ plans to open WHW when researching for Is this the Future? way back in 2011. It was a good time for me to visit for several reasons, once of which being that I was planning to write an article for Permaculture Magazine about how being in nature can contribute to good mental health.
The 25th Anniversary issue (Nature, our medicine chest) of Permaculture Magazine is out now, and is full of interesting articles alongside mine. You can get hold of a copy online, in most independent health shops and at WH Smith and Sainsburys. (Subscribing is also only £15 and I’d recommend it as it’s always a good read.)
