I do a lot of talks and demonstrations at various Events, Festivals, Corporate functions and Schools across the country. Foraging team-building exercises are increasingly popular!
If I am doing any book signing or talks in the near future...this is the place to look.
The talks are based around Self-Sufficiency told through my experiences in the woods. I have found that Children are particularly receptive to the Tree house talks, which allow them to learn about the wild and indulge in the day-dream of living in a Tree House. I have done series of talks that focus on the three pillars of self-sufficiency: Shelter, Hunting and Gathering.
Pecha Kucha talk for Hope & Homes for children: 6 mins, 20 slides...no control!
Tree House workshops:
The workshops are designed to teach children the mechanics of Tree house building using a 1:12 scale model of the Tree house I lived in for 6 months. The importance of using recycled and natural materials and sustainable building is also highlighted throughout. The workshops are hands on so everyone gets a chance to help put the Tree house together safely using bolts.
