About FWG

The story so far

Free We Grow started in 2017 when a group of parents who wanted their children to be able to experience a free, enabling, play and consent based learning environment connected with Rowan, who had been exploring how our learning environments affect our relationships with ourselves, each other and the land we live on.

We opened a learning community for children in Dacres Wood Nature reserve in South London. Soon were joined by new families and facilitators who share this vision and dream and who have together been working to enable this space to emerge and grow.

In 2023 Free We Grow is celebrating its 6th year. You can find stories of learning, play and the questions we’ve been asking ourselves in our blog, which we publish half termly. The original team has now changed with the founding families stepping down, and the holding team now includes Rowan, Sara Martins, a parent whose child attended in 2020 and who continues to support the project, Sara Asadullah, facilitator at Free We Grow from 2020-2021 and again now, Mariana, who is currently co-facilitating with Rowan; Yasmin and Anna, who are parents of current children.

We are looking to invite new  members to the holding team as time passes so that the project can continue to unfold.
