    Bonus episode: George Clarke on utopian towns and secret projects

    Our final episode of series 2 of A Life More wild sees us chatting to George Clarke about his humble beginnings creating treehouses as a kid, and the journey it took to building some of his more famous creations. Our very own Siri Thomas gets George chatting about nature in the city, inspiration for his recent work, and even, a little teaser for what’s to come…  

    As we weren't able to get out in the wild and record this one with George, it takes a slightly different format to normal but it was such a lovely chat that we just had to share. The 10th anniversary series of George Clarke's Amazing Spaces is due early in 2023.

    Bonus episode: 24 hours in 24 minutes, a sensory nature meditation experience

    Wake to birdsong, walk in the woods, forage as you go, then dip into a stream to cool off before you head back to sit round the crackling fire. Leave feeling calm, connected and soothed by nature.
    This week we're bringing you a slightly different sort of episode. Earlier this summer we hosted the Slow Down and Relax Tipi at Fearne Cotton's Happy Place festival and ran a number of sensory nature workshops. We received lots of positive feedback about the workshop and people asked if we could share it, so here it is.
    Find a cosy spot, get comfortable and if you've got an eye mask feel free to pop it on.

    Resetting, reinventing and growing - Sophie Morgan and Alice Vincent

    We took a trip around Southwark Park with TV presenter and award-winning disability advocate Sophie Morgan. We talked about growing up wild, how her relationship with nature has changed, and if she was a tree, what tree she would be. We also speak to author and passionate gardener Alice Vincent, about the single flower that inspired her to a life of growing and how to work with any size of space.
    You can watch Sophie's show 'Living Wild: How To Change Your Life' on Channel 4 here, and check out her book 'Driving Forwards' here.
    Alice's book is called 'Rootbound' and is out now

Lovely, grounding conversations in nature.

Just discovered this podcast and am absolutely loving it! The conversations, sounds of nature are everything I need right now. I’ve bookmarked the guided meditation nature walk, and have gone back to it several times already. Thank you for creating such beautiful, thought provoking content.
