The Just Bloom programme is designed for foster families across Hertfordshire and offers creative ways to engage with nature for wellbeing. Children receive a seasonal Just Bloom Box and Journal, full of nature-based craft activities and suggestions for enjoying the natural world at every time of year. They also join us regularly with their carers for Thrive Outside Days, which offer nature-based crafts, food growing and harvesting, woodland fun and campfires. Carers are invited to evening nature-based wellbeing activities throughout the year.
