Join us on the land as we work together to rewild 50 acres from the ground up.

Embercombe and Ecosystem Restoration Camps are passionate about rewilding the land and rewilding people. Together we are offering a series of camps for people to come and get involved in a rewilding project from the start – bringing ‘nature power’ to the people.

Each week-long camp gives you the chance to get your hands in the soil, as together we work on the practical elements of land rewilding – from baseline survey to planning and design, to conservation practices, species introductions, tree planting, to wild food growing and harvesting and eating.

This is also an opportunity to sit together around the fire, or spend time alone in a beautiful spot in our 50 acre wooded valley, to reflect on what ‘wilding’ means to you, and to society at this time – to consider, remember and restore your relationship with the rest of nature.

Together as a camp we will begin to understand what we mean by rewilding and what it means for people, and we will begin it!

Is this for you?


These camps are for anyone who feels the need to be on the land, with a community of people, making a difference to the future of wildlife in this country and beyond. This is for all who feel disempowered by the news of crises and want to do something positive, to make new friends, to get involved. No experience is necessary, just a willingness for experimentation, enquiry and emergence and above all… fun!


What to expect


  • practical work and citizen science on the land
  • teaching, discussion and planning sessions with rewilding experts
  • nature connection, bushcraft and foraging activities
  • ceremony, story, sharing around the fire
  • fabulous vegan food from our in-house chefs

Ashleigh Brown

Ashleigh has worked across the world for the past ten years, developing and leading trainings for various organisations that have been received in over 50 countries around the world. Her passion is to support people in their learning and development towards a higher purpose that serves to better our world. Since 2010, this has included increasing reading rates and literacy in sub-saharan Africa, Asia, and refugee communities in the UK, and, in the past 4 years, her passion and focus has been in ecosystem restoration. Co-founding Ecosystem Restoration Camps in 2017, Ashleigh has helped the organisation grow from John D Liu’s idea to a global movement of 37 camps around the world. Embercombe became a camp in 2019, and Ashleigh has supported the development of the Rewilding Camps concept. She is an example of how an everyday person, passionate about healing the world, can get stuck in and make things happen.

Embercombe partners with Ecorestoration Camps

Embercombe is delighted to announce a new partnership with Ecorestoration Camps, a global grassroots movement that aspires to get people from all walks of life volunteering and learning and working together to restore degraded land around the world.

The purpose of this collaboration is to rewild the Embercombe valley, as well as supporting the rewilding of the land around it, and to create together a series of practical learning opportunities for people to be involved in the transformation.

“This is a great opportunity to support and work with a network of similar places around the world, so we can do our bit to inspire people to rewild and restore as much land as possible. After the lock-down there will be people needing to get their hands and feet back on the land and we’d like to provide the opportunity to do this, whilst knowing there are others out there doing the same, from all kinds of backgrounds, traditions, beliefs and places – many that we can innovate and learn from”

– Rachel Fleming, Director at Embercombe

As the only camp in the UK we are looking forward to welcoming people from around the world to courses and work experiences, helping us to rewild our land, be an example for other pieces of land in this country and to explore what it means for people to rewild themselves. Are you interested to come and work and learn on our land?
