Using cleavers as a tinder

I’ve written previously about using cleavers (Galium aparine) as a tinder, but recently as I was pottering around our ancient woodland camp on the beautiful Kent Downs I spotted a load in a dead hedge and decided to make this short video that describes using cleavers as a tinder.

We teach how to prepare and use various tinders on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses, the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course and also our 2 Day & 5 Day Survival Courses.  You can see plenty of photos from all of these courses on our Facebook page.
