Preparations at New Bushcraft Course Venue
Some of the Frontier Bushcraft team spent the past few days camping in the woods, making preparations at a fabulous new course site where we'll be running a wide range of bushcraft courses. The site is beautiful and consists of a large area of mixed woodland with a rich variety of flora and fauna - an excellent venue for teaching bushcraft.
We set up a simple camp to work from and then got to work sourcing materials from the forest to build some base-camp facilities for our courses.

Despite all the hard work, we also managed to find the time to do some foraging for wild foods. We were delighted to find a good supply of chanterelles. These were added to our one of our breakfasts, which helped fuel all the activity!

Our first course at this great new site starts next weekend and we look forward to sharing our campfire here with many more of you in the future.
