The Philosophy of Between The Trees

“There is grandeur in this view of Life”

Plants, trees and insects were on this planet long before humans arrived and are likely to be on the planet long after we have left. Basically, life on Earth would survive without us as a species, but not without the other Flora and Fauna.

“Homo sapiens are just one of a myriad other species living between the trees.”

BTT is passionate about the role we play in the conservation and preservation of all life forms. We specifically aim to encourage future generations to respect their Planet and enjoy the beauty of nature through scientific investigation and environmental art.

In recent years, younger generations have spent less and less time playing and exploring in the great outdoors and observing wildlife in its natural habitat. Sadly, certain words of the natural world have been lost from their vocabulary such as acorn, otter, bramble, dandelion and many more. The rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading from our children’s minds. Instead, children are spending too much of their time in front of screens. 

“Are we allowing social media and computer games to hijack their precious childhoods?”

We believe that through social interaction, play, art and investigative education, we can re-connect with the natural world. Andy Goldsworthy (land artist) summarises this up perfectly when he said “We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So, when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.”

We invite you to be a part of “Between The Trees”, to enjoy with us, the inspirational woodland environment, the beauty of nature, music, land art, and spoken word and find yourselves inspired, refreshed and restored.

There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved” – Charles Darwin (1859)
