Our activities

Wilderlife is all about putting people and communities at the very heart of rewilding! We believe that people should be at the heart of the rewilding revolution, not stuck behind a fence and excluded from what is rightfully ours! Together we will prove that we can all give something to nature, and get so much more in return!

Through our wilderlife walks, workshops, and team building days, we intend to put you at the very heart of rewilding! Together we can turn our rooftops, gardens, cities and countryside back to nature in a way that brings us more food, more exercise for our minds and bodies, and more happiness than ever before! At Wilderlife can show you how!

And as if that isn't enough, rewilding really is the gift that keeps on giving! Rewilding is party time for wildlife! Once we let it run free, nature will lock up pollution, suck up carbon dioxide, create flood defences, fight climate change, build homes for more species, and provide us with more yummy food than we ever thought possible! You don’t need to know anything about nature to get involved. Once you get started it's as easy as 1,2,3!

So join us for a rewilding activity that will blow your wild mind!

· Take a walk with us and discover your wild side.

· Get a taste for nature on a regenerative foraging workshop that creates even more wild food in the process.

· Become a Wilderlife Engineer on a team building day.

· Watch our ‘How to’ videos and rewild your life!

· We’re rewilding our community. Why not do the same!


Take a walk on the wild side

Our wild side walks through the South Downs National Park are tailored for your needs, including individuals and groups. These walks are designed to give you time and space to free up your mind and connect with nature and your surroundings. Our walks also allow you to get under the skin of nature and experience a wilder life! Forage for wild foods, track animals, learn bird song, navigate using nature signposting, and much more!

Regenerative foraging

Our regenerative foraging workshops follow the techniques and values of indigenous communities around the world. The principle of regenerative foraging is that we give back more to nature than we take as food, encouraging more wild food and enriched ecosystems everywhere we go! This fun and inspiring outdoor workshop will include a foraging session in the beautiful South Downs National Park where we will teach the techniques of regenerative foraging, including seed, fruit and nut planting; the value of cuttings; natural fertilisers; foraging invasive species; and rewilding wild foods!   

Team building and workshop sessions - Become a Wilderlife Engineer!

Our team building days are at the very heart of our rewilding programme and are our number one most popular choice! With activities for all group sizes and all ages, we will put your crafting and grafting skills and creative thinking to the test as you build your own natural habitats and take a piece of them home with you! As a wilderlife engineer you will build beaver dams, construct stork nests, learn wild boar rooting techniques (your colleagues may not live this down for a while), knock down trees elephant style, light fires that grow mushrooms, trample ponds for freshwater shrimps and so much more!

Community rewilding - the time has come!

We are working with our community here in Lewes, East Sussex, to create a Community Rewilding Mosaic. Our aim is to link together pieces of land large and small, within our town, and outside, and to use rewilding techniques to regenerate our land and reverse the ecosystem collapse and climate change challenges that are facing us all. We're new to this. We haven't really got a clue. But that's what makes it very exciting! So if you want to do the same in the place where you live, get in touch and we'll happily share with you our experience so far!
