Under the Oak Tree is a small educational company with a mission to help communities rediscover their love for the natural world. Our focus is on teaching children and adults crafts, and outdoor skills. We offer courses in practical gardening, from designing and creating edible gardens to growing vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers. Our aim is to preserve these skills for future generations and to create a space where children and adults can connect to Nature. In this we see ourselves more as mediators and guides, creating an environment where people can learn craft and gardening skills, use natural materials responsibly and where connection to the land can happen naturally. We believe that this is at the heart of our sustainable relationship with the Earth, and a place where we can become more fully aware of the interconnectedness of nature and the human community. We believe this connection should happen early in childhood and valued throughout adult life.
