Details (Bushcraft & Foraging)

We will meet Luca at a given location on Saturday morning (accessible by public transport), and walk to our camp. The walk to the camp introduces us to the environment in which we will spend the weekend.

The rest of the day will be dedicated to two main activities:

  • The preparation of the camp where you will spend the night (tarps, knots)
  • Wood carving to make your own wooden spoon
  • The bow drill fire making process to keep you warm and cook

 

On Sunday, after an energising breakfast, Nina will take you for a walk to pick edible wild plants. She will introduce you to the local plants and together you will forage the food needed for the lunch. Once enough edible plants have been gathered, you will head back to the camp and prepare your lunch on the campfire.

How to get there?

We will confirm the location at a later stage. It will be accessible by public transport.
