‘Meet Beech’ hosted by Sap Rising: The event is also a chance to showcase the work Tree Charter Branches across the UK have been doing over the past three years. Local Devon Charter branch Sap Rising is a collective of four women: Emma Capper is a Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide; Beth Heaney is an arts practitioner, educator and researcher in all things drawn; Myrtle Cooper is a professional forager and wild food educator; and Sarah Gray is a somatic movement and yoga teacher. They are excited to be a part of the online festival and are offering ‘Meet Beech’ – 4 audio experiences for individuals or small groups to walk, stand, breathe, connect, and fall in love with Beech trees for wellbeing and inspiration. The audios they have created are available from that day and for the following week, to be downloaded from the on-line festival website to take outside with you at your pleasure and convenience. The intention is to engage more fully in our local natural environment, specifically with Beech trees. See: https://www.facebook.com/events/191715452512515/.
