​I hope this finds you well. We are looking forward to getting courses back up and running when restrictions are lifted. Thank you for your patience, and a huge thank you to customers who have bought gift vouchers during this time. Meanwhile, i hope you find the following blog interesting. ​In the midst of the current Coronavirus crisis, our dependence on industrialised society and the global production chain is put into sharp focus. Uncertain times lead many of us to think about how we can be more self-sufficient and localised. How can can we rely less on the supermarket? How we can have less impact on our planet?

How to forage for razor clams at low tide.

March 26, 2020

On 17th March we suspended upcoming courses (see previous update), however following the UK and Scottish Governments' Announcements of a UK-wide lockdown, we are suspending all courses until further notice. 

We will resume our course schedule as soon as possible and will be adding additional dates for 2021 to give you more options to reschedule.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience at this time, and wish you all good health.

The validity period of all our gift vouchers will be automatically extended by six months and we'll make further extensions if necessary.

Meanwhile, Leon has written a new blog post about the health benefits of breathing techniques here. Hope you find it interesting and useful. Don't forget you can connect with us on Instagram and Facebook too. 

Stay safe and keep in touch. We look forward to seeing you in the woods again when the situation allows.

Very best wishes from Leon and Alison
