CPRE (the countryside charity) joined London Bushcraft for a half day event. Here is what David Walsh (Campaigns and Policy Assistant) had to say about the experience...
“Across the country, the phrases ‘staff away day’, ‘team-building exercises’ would fill some offices with horror. Not so with London Bushcraft.
“Foraging gave a fascinating and varied insight into the sustainable sources of food all around us that we so often overlook. From rosehips to horseradish, the wealth of flavours to be found in just a short walk was remarkable, and a testament to the course leaders understanding of the rhythms of the wildlife.
“Fire lighting was the perfect task for a cold day as it warms the body several times over: from gathering the wood, to striking flints, becoming human bellows and finally enjoying a well-earned rest in front of the fire. Fire awakens something in us far older, wilder and more promethean than turning down the central heating.
“A day with London Bushcraft reminds us that there are simpler ways of living, where the only thing that matters is survival. It is the ultimate way to relieve stress and set yourself up for a productive return to work. The fact this can be done at the end of the District Line was quite a surprise!”
