Try your hand at some greenwood working skills in the Wildwoods
This year’s Wild Woods space will be managed by Sylvan Adventures, a not-for-profit organisation based in Devon.
Sylvan Adventures CIC has the pleasure of hosting the “Wildwood” area at this year Offgrid festival. We have recently formed a community interest company (CIC) with the aim of “Connecting People and Communities to Nature through Adventures”. The Sylvan Adventures tribe will be in the “Wildwood” area throughout the festival providing a chillout relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy time in beautiful natural woodland by a fire or in the nets and hammocks, play, make a friend or meet an old one.
Dan Best~ Sylvan Adventures
“I founded Sylvan Adventures in 2013 to share my lifelong passion for wildlife and the natural environment. This started with me growing up in rural Herefordshire and developed during my HND in Countryside Management, including over a year spent with the West Wales Wildlife Trust, delivering environmental education.
Since moving to Devon I have worked on the ‘Wild Nights Out’ project for Devon Discovery, Play Torbay and Play England as an Environmental Play Worker, whereby I gained both childcare and forest school qualifications. I am a member of the Forest School Association and a county representative for Devon. I co-delivered the Eco-play and delivered three John Muir Award projects. During my career I have always enjoyed supporting and developing people. As well as my passion for nature and outdoors, I have a keen interest in communication and language difficulties. “
