Where do your herbal remedies courses take place?
Jack Raven Bushcraft courses take place in Westwell, Kent, between Canterbury and Ashford and just 50 miles from the centre of London, in quite stunning ancient woodland in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have access to around 60 or so acres of broadleaf woodland. Our camp is in a private woodland, which itself is in the middle of private land. Some of our courses are held in our purpose built workshop on a working farm.
What previous experience do I need?
All of our herbal remedies courses are designed so that you don’t need any previous experience, and are entirely hands on so that you leave us with simple, practical and repeatable skills. We’ll look at the same plants several times to re-enforce positive identification. We are certain that you will have a lot of fun along the way!
What facilities are available on your herbal remedies courses?
So that you can effectively learn the skills that we teach, we have created a learning environment in the woods. We have an expedition style camp with a yurt and wood burning stove, a parachute, a kitchen area, work benches and a composting toilet.
