WORKSHOPS

WORKSHOP A. WILD FOOD

All our food originally comes from mother nature and therefore has its wild representative. But there also exist many eatable plants that we do not know about, we do not know what benefits they may have for our health and we cannot even recognize them. Shall we make a nice soup out of fresh Nettles? Or a fresh salad with Dandelion or Clover? There are much more possibilities than you might think…

WORKSHOP B. ELABORATION OF TOOLS

Would you like to be able to make your own spoon? During this course we will work with the best timber species to be found in Spain such as Beech, Olive and Boxwood. We could make mortars, spoons, hammers and many other useful tools for our kitchen, garden or house.

WORKSHOP C. WATER AND FIRE

Knowing how and where to find water is essential for any survival situation. There is more then you would think, even in deserts. We learn how to find, how to extract water and finally how to filter the water with improvised available materials. Fire is not always our enemy, knowing how it works is knowing how to prevent it from getting out of control. Our ancestors did not have lighters or matches, in this course we learn how they did it! Forest fire prevention is an essential part of this workshop.

WORKSHOP D. BIVOUAC AND NIGHT SHELTERS

In any case it is better not to get lost while out in the mountains, but if it happens we must know what to do. Find or build a shelter for the night or simply to pass a rain storm, hard winds or even snow. We learn about different techniques that exist to construct a shelter, improvising with available materials. Would you dare to spend the night in it?

WORKSHOP E. FIRST AID

What would you do in case a friend gets hurt while out in the mountains? How would you act in case of a bleeding or when somebody simply twists an ankle. There are many easy ways to transport our victims in case we are too far out for a car to reach us. We learn to distinguish for which injuries we can help and for which we should ask for professional help right away. To know how to ask for help from a professional rescue service and how to support them in their work can be crucial in the survival of the victim.

OUR VISION

A green planet full of wilderness areas. Increasing awareness of our role within nature while our own children educate their parents. The rural environment as generator of opportunities while interpretative guides are capacitated and committed, inspiring and transmitting sustainability values.

WILDERNESS: The most intact, undisturbed wild natural areas left on our planet, those last truly wild places governed by natural processes that humans do not control and have not developed.   “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness”,  John Muir.

NATURE CONSERVATION: The protection of natural resources and landscapes, including biodiversity of plant and animal species. Taking in account historical, cultural and spiritual heritage.   “What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another”,  Mahatma Gandhi.

ECOTOURISM: Responsible travel to natural areas that protect the environment and improves the well-being of local people.   “Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world”,  Gustave Flaubert.

OUR PRODUCTS: Primary or secondary education courses, nature youth camps, family experiences, survival trainings, nature expeditions, wildlife observation, profesional guide training, consultancy in nature conservation, sustainable tourism and socio-economic development.
