Based at the lovely Trill Farm Campsite we will visit a number of different habitats in the Farm to learn simple and fun ways to encourage musical collaboration, learn about plants.

The campsite at Trill Farm.
The campsite has a hearth under an old oak tree, two open barns, one with tables and running water, there's also solar showers, compost loos and amazing views of East Devon countryside. I think it's the perfect place to run back to simplicity courses... and you can get there easily by train and bus. If you can't bring your own tent you can hire one from me or sleep in the communal bell tent.

Trill Farm
Trill Farm is a 300 acre mixed organic farm set in the rolling hills and woodlands of East Devon. Romy Fraser, who started Neal's Yard Remedies bought the farm in 2008 with the aim of developing an education centre and community of small businesses that could work together to use the land's resources.

nature connection

HI, Chris Holland here...  I am a passionate and playful outdoor educator, storyteller and musician.

This site is the home of my inspirational digital media for nature connection and creative, playful outdoor learning. 

I have been helping people of all ages connect with nature, each other and themselves since 2000.

I hope these resources help spread wonder, love and hope for our natural world.
