Welcome to Aquafolium, our name means literally in Latin: Aqua (Water) Folium (Leaf)

We are a social enterprise on a mission to rewire society with nature. We are one of the country’s top providers of nature-based health interventions.

Here is a short film about us

Here is a longer audio podcast interview about us

We are committed to helping individuals and communities to lead a healthy life where physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing is supported by the natural environment and our relationship with it. We design specific interventions, experiences and activities for a range of wellness and illness. All our work is based on evidence that has a good scientific or medical basis.

Much of our work is commissioned but we also offer some open access sessions and training for those wishing to deliver interventions themselves. To learn more about these opportunities please visit the ‘what we offer’ pages.

Nature. Nurture. Enjoy!

‘It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit’ Robert Louis Stevenson

I have been suffering with depression and feeling very down. I haven’t seen the point in anything, but today I found my smile in the forest. It’s only been a short time, but I thought of a plan whilst I was out and now I feel like I know what I am going to do. I haven’t felt like this in such a long time.

My partner is losing his memory. I am grieving for the person who is fast disappearing. We don’t have long together now and he can’t walk far. But he used to enjoy his walks in the woods so much. I now know where to go and what to do. I will take him on this walk and together we will experience something special. Thank you.
