"It was absolutely wonderful; it made me feel like a child again. I enjoyed every bit, all working together and everyone taking part. I loved everything about it." Gloria Burke

“Fantastic, well run event. The day exceeded my expectations. Very good mixture of activities and great enthusiasm from the guides. It was an excellent introduction which was well paced and interesting and was exactly as was described in the proposal. I would definitely recommend London Bushcraft.” Sebastian Barret, Credit Suisse

"Very novel to do bushcraft in London. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic presentation." Anthony Scarfo

"London Bushcraft created a bespoke program of bushcraft activities for our Vivobarefoot Summer Festival. The event was very well planned and organised, meeting all our special requirements. This included roasting three whole lambs over a fire pit which resulted in an amazing taste experience!
The bushcraft workshops were delivered by professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructors. I was very impressed in their ability to deliver sessions to participants varying widely in age, abilities and experience. High levels of safety were maintained at all times including the popular and busy wood carving and fire lighting sessions. We will be inviting them to come back next year!", Galahad Clark, Vivobarefoot

"Today was the most exquisite day of my life!" Thea, age 11

"Wendy's course was friendly and down to earth. She encouraged a cooperative atmosphere among the participants, who enjoyed themselves so much they clearly didn't want to go home." Mike Wells.

"Today I was amazed at the different things we learnt about, including what we learnt about the plants. The day was excellent; our teacher was good. The young people said that they would rate the day 30 out of 30. We made nettle soup and berry bread with jam and it was tasty. The day went very well. 100/100." June Greene, Community Links coordinator/ teacher

"I thought today was fantastic because we made soup and blackberry bread." Ryan, age 10

“Fantastic, very informative sessions. It met my expectations and more! It tied in beautifully with our curriculum the sessions really brought our book “Wolf Brother” to life. It was great to see the children so engaged in what they were doing and learning important life skills”, Jess Olivaras, Bishop Gilpin C of E Primary School

"Considering the fact that it was just a one-hour stroll and that the nature preserve is only one square block, this was a surprisingly productive and informative adventure. Of course, this is an excellent time of year for foraging, but I really didn't expect to find much in a city park. Wendy, the guide, is knowledgeable about not only wild foods but also medicinal uses and some history." Astrid

I thought that the lemon balm cordial was great for them to try and the insects- so important for the future and sustainability. It's good to challenge cultural attitudes in these ways!", Rush, birthday booking

"That was the best kid's party I've been to. You were great with children and I had a great time too!", Wayne, parent helper for birthday party

"I thought the event was fab! We got all of the learning objectives and enjoyment we wanted from the course. Thank you for all your hard work. We hope you'll come back again next year.
