The Community Garden Project….

Our current ambition is to turn our old pig pen into a communal garden. Over the past few years our home reared pigs have done a wonderful job of digging and overturning their large pig pen but now we think it is time for a change… We are looking for volunteers who would like to help turn this space into a beautiful flower garden for the local community to enjoy. It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet others, share knowledge and learn new skills while watching the space flourish through the seasons. We have already made a start with the help of our first two volunteers and some funding from Aldington and Bonnington Parish Council which has helped us with initial starting costs. Some hawthorn hedging, donated by The Woodland Trust has been planted to border the garden and already some of the tiny buds are starting to unfurl.

We would welcome enquiries from anyone who might like to help. This may be a one off offering of your time or a more regular commitment but if you would like to get involved, please send us a message, pull on your wellies and come and be part of it all!


The wellbeing of both adults and children is interwoven through all the activities and groups that we run at Led by the Wild. We aim to provide a haven in the woodland or on the farm where day to day pressures can be forgotten with a focus on living for the moment. This may be by joining in with or learning a new creative skill, being part of a longer term project in our community garden, or simply enjoying one of our twilight evenings around the campfire.

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order”

John Burroughs (1837-1921)

Twilight Campfire Evenings

Cosy blankets, warm mittens, campfires, steaming hot drinks and toasted marshmallows: could you do with some hygge in your life? If the answer is YES! then come and join us at our next evening event where we invite you to come and enjoy the simple pleasures away from the stresses and strains of daily life and we promise to provide a cosy evening around the campfire to chat, share ideas and be content in the moment.
