Seasonal Foraging Experience with Make it Wild

Seasonal Foraging Experience with Make it Wild will take place in the ancient woodlands and meadows at Bank Woods, Summerbridge.

Make it Wild was started 12 years as a family project by the Neave family – Helen, Christopher and their three children. Becoming more aware of the negative impact humans were having on the planet the family wanted to create more wild spaces to encourage biodiversity and allow nature to flourish.

“We have started this project to encourage a greater knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the natural world. We want people to share in the beauty of the wild spaces we’re creating.”

The short video below explains more about what the family do and why they do it.

Make it Wild’s mission statement is

“It’s not our aim to protect nature, it’s our purpose.”
