WILD Sounds & Books In Conversation With…Patrick Barkham
Sponsored by WILD Sounds & Books
Do you remember a childhood where outdoor adventures were uninhibited and carefree? Disappearing for hours on end, finding isolated fields to lie in, throwing ‘darts’ of Wall Barley at each other and climbing the tallest trees you could find without fear, harm or retribution? Sadly, those halcyon days are being confined to the history books, as more children turn to computers rather than cornfields. However, author and journalist, Patrick Barkham wants to encourage 21st families to reconnect with nature and the outdoors.
Patrick talks to Nick Acheson about how his own experiences as both parent and forest school volunteer inspired him to write Wild Child: Coming Home to Nature and how we can all take a fresh and youthful approach to the nature that surrounds us.
