The Hut of Wellbeing project aims to build and manage a woodland hut in Fife, available for short stays to those in need of respite due to health or other problems. It was dreamt up by a Reforesting Scotland member who had to give up his own plans to build a hut after a cancer diagnosis, but wants to make the stress-relieving experience of a stay in a simple shelter close to nature available to others in difficult situations.
We have secured a site with appropriate planning permission and taken on an architect, who is working with builders and a steering group to design a building that fits perfectly with the site and the needs of its users.
We have now launched a crowdfunding campaign for the project and you can make donations via this. There are some incredibly generous rewards too, like weekend stays in other huts, books and more.
