Current Projects

  • Be Wilder Camps LLP

    Be Wilder Camps LLP is a business that brings together eco-tourism with rewilding and regenerative land management. I am a founder partner in this novel enterprise.

    We operate a glamping site in Somerset, run ‘rewilding’ activities, provide consultation and license other camping and glamping sites to setup. We work with landowners to provide solutions to ensuring rewilding, biodiversity gain and regenerative land use are financially sustainable in the short term, helping to bridge the gap in revenue that can come from transforming land from traditional usages to new purposes.

    Field 725 Campsite

    Tucked away amongst the rolling Somerset hills and a stone’s throw from the fabulous small market town of Frome and the arts & culture hub of Bruton. Field 725 occupies a semi-wild meadow on a hillside, bounded by wild woodland and with incredible views over the peaceful countryside and picturesque villages nearby. It offers the perfect destination for an enjoyable family holiday or relaxing romantic break plus operates as a venue for weddings, retreats, LARP and Living History events, education gatherings and more.

    We believe in providing you with a close to nature experience that is relaxing, revitalising and above all lots of fun. This is the kind of place where you’re welcome to light a fire (in a fire dish); have a BBQ; play your (acoustic) guitar or whatever else takes your fancy.

    The campsite has sometimes been described as being like a festival without the hecticness and loud music. We liked that. 🙂


    The Community Cider Company

    Set up in December 2019, shortly before the onset of the delightful COVID-19, which radically changed our business plans! The Community Cider Company produces Uptonogood, a delicious local drink with a great story behind it. As a micro-cider company we can produce up to 7000 ltrs of cider per year but our primary aim is to help those with apple surplus make the best use of them and turn them into a bottled product able to be sold locally to raise funds for causes, school groups, village halls and others.

    Permaculture Association

    The Permaculture Association is the national charity that supports members and the public with advice, support, information and training about the theory and practice of permaculture. I am engaged as National Events Coordinator to design and deliver an events programme that is innovative and entrepreneurial.

    The aim is to reach new audiences, raise more funds and generally promote permaculture in new areas. There is a particular focus on the area of enterprise and economy.

    One major project was CTRLshift, a groundbreaking major conference held in Wigan in 2018 and Stoke on Trent in 2019, co-organised by a group of social change organisations working at both grassroots and policy level. Most recently, we have been engaged more actively in online events and in 2021 produced the first ever online European Permaculture Convergence with over 1000 attendees and 70 speakers from across 30+ countries.
