The natural thread linking our learning together is Permaculture, taking nature as the teacher. Permaculture is a design system based on the observation of natural ecosystems that can help us create harmonious, resilient and beneficial human systems (https://www.permaculture.org.uk/)
Back in 2009 we held The ‘Introduction to Permaculture’ course led by teacher Aranya (www.designedvisions.com)which kicked off learning at WildGuernsey. Since then Wildfood foraging has become the heart of WildGuernsey.
We offer a 2 hour stand alone WildFood workshop (£20 per person, includes picking, tasting prepared food and involves you in making things on the workshop), for you if you want to get an array of plants under your belt in a quicker amount of time, want to give someone a present (voucher) or get a taste of what there is to learn and eat! 2016 will see a WildSeashore and a WildHerbal workshop, plus offering a choice of Gatherings for children celebrations, one of which is a seaweed party. Email me to arrange a date for a small group.
‘Eat The Change. Finding your food & feeling the difference. Seasonal Attunement’
The challenges are eclipsed by the pleasures
Outdoor learning: We offer a location for schools to tie in with their outdoor learning curriculum and also provide activities for young people such as orienteering, bushcraft skills, team and shelter building.
Duke of Edinburghs Award: The site is an ideal location close to Pleinmont for walking and tucked away surrounded by green lanes and paths, making getting to us even more of an adventure. The site is natural and allows the young people to experience true WildCamping.
Guides and Scouts Activities: We have run a foraging and outdoor cooking experience to visiting scout groups and groups camping so give us a call if you need something different and affordable for your group.
WildGuernsey can also offer packages tailored to the specific requirements of groups up to 12. Examples include:
- A healing group taking a break together
- Corporate team building
- Walking groups wanting to be close to the cliffs and unspoilt south coast
- A surprise birthday or anniversary weekend
- Star gazers
- Artists inspired by seascapes
- Surfers looking for that alternative camping pad.
The type of programme we could put together is limited only by imagination. We can arrange a week full of sea and land based activities.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
