Want to learn more about what the environment can provide you to enhance your time on the land? Want to learn new skills in fire-lighting, plant uses and wild foods?
Join Steve England for a half-day course in bushcraft, where we will explore the woods and fields of Stoke Park, looking at the trees, plants and learning about their uses and how we can harness them for our benefit, including uses of the willow tree such as deriving liquid asparin, making cordage and how to use the tree as a painkiller. We will identify and collect a number of wild edible foods for tasting along the way, and identify and collect fire lighting materials, learn the basics of fire making and how to make a fire from freshly cut wet wood, and then put into practice your newly acquired skills!
This beginners bushcraft course is aimed at adults, forest school teachers and outdoor enthusiasts. 14+.
What to Bring?
If you have your own knife and fire steel, or anything you currently use outdoors, please do bring along on the day.
Suitable clothing to be worn and sturdy footwear, and bring a notepad, pen and camera.
