Required clothing and equipment and food

All specialist materials for each workshop will be provided unless otherwise stated (eg. Axe course). Food will not be provided other than on the wild food based workshops, but there will be an opportunity to grab something from the Whitmuir cafe in the morning. Please bring a water bottle with you to remain hydrated throughout the workshop.

You may find a camera and notebook useful when identifying plants and trees and to take notes on all workshops.

All workshops will take place predominantly outdoors and in all weathers, so please come suitably dressed to be outside for a few hours. Waterproofs are essential as the weather can be fickle!!
