Chris will cook-up wild greens collected on the ramble to give you a taste of wild cooked food during the outing. It’s a walk and talk along the west beach, collecting things to make a group land art piece.


Chris is a leading inspiration in the field of nature connection and environmental education for families and schools in the UK and increasingly worldwide. He has many things in his teaching bundle including a degree in environmental science and a natural talent for working with groups of people, telling stories, sharing bushcraft skills, foraging, creating environmental art and playing the didgeridoo too. He wrote his first nature connection guidebook book, “I Love my World”, in 2009. It’s “a must have for all” according to Michael Morpurgo.

He lives in East Devon and loves swimming, surfing and climbing trees barefoot. Chris is founder of and has just launched the brilliant new storytelling course membership site
