Harris Garden Nature Connection Walk
At the University of Reading
Find natural calm on this themed walk of wonder around the tranquil Harris Garden.
Using natural mindfulness to reconnect you to the awe of nature, we will stroll through peaceful woods and around this quiet, botanical garden on the University of Reading campus.
This will be a slow, sometimes silent, walk so you can relax and take in your surroundings. Enjoy being in nature and taking in the beauty of Spring.
The walk will take around an hour and a half and will end with an optional hot drink, at the nearby The Three Tuns pub, where we can share our experiences.
