“The most inspirational, magical, humbling and life-changing event I have ever experienced. When I initially enrolled for the course before the Covid lockdowns, I was drawn to the variety of venues, the guest teachers and the opportunity to learn more about the flora and fauna of my native land. However, the course turned out to offer so much more …
A sense of hope
I’ve come away with a sense of hope about my own contribution about how to make things better
Before coming I really didn’t know that much about rewilding, and now I feel like how to rewild the land and community feels really embedded within me. It’s really helped me develop my understanding of rewilding.

Well facilitated by some lovely fellas …
