Green Scene Forest School

Green Scene Forest School:  Environmental Education Service Limited  is run by Hemendra Headworth (Hem) who has thirty years experience of working within the Environmental Conservation and Heritage field and Lee Brown (Chartered Psychologist).

Green Scene’s aim is to help improve the lives of vulnerable people in an outdoor setting across the life span.

The natural environment provides a wealth of learning opportunities to increase the well-being of individuals and promote recovery after illness or injury. This helps build positive attitudes, and self-esteem to reduce stress and challenging behaviour.  Green Scene Forest School achieves this by delivering training and activities, incorporating  ecotherapy (Forest School, bushcraft, and outdoor cooking). Teaching traditional arts and crafts such as woodcarving, and greenwood working also helps in one to one or group settings.

All activities are designed to build up skills, confidence and self-esteem, incorporating transferable life skills and embedded learning. 

Green Scene provides a service in partnership with organisations such as the NHS, local authorities, community groups, other social enterprises.

Currently Green Scene is working in partnership with Inspire Culture|Learning|Libraries;  Nottinghamshire County Council and the Education & Skills Funding Agency to deliver community and family learning courses for adults.   We regularly deliver courses and activities for adults with learning difficulties and disabilities or for families (children accompanied with their parents or guardians).

Green Scene is currently running a free “ Environmental Art & Crafts: Eco Therapy Course” aimed at adults with working age dementia, or mental health issues and carers at Ransom Wood Business Park.  Activities are often around a campfire, where participants learn to light a fire, and boil water in volcanoes kettles; learn to chop wood safely and carry out art and craft activities such as whittling, and hapa zome (Japanese art of extracting patterns using plant based dyes).

Green Scene will be joining forces with the ‘Wobbly Bodger’ to run a number of adult Green woodworking and spoon carving courses between May and end of July.

  • Chris Kho


    Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
