Self-Sufficient YOU! (Instalment Plan Option)

If you had twelve months to turn your life around and become more self-sufficient, what would it look like to you?

We have designed a twelve month programme to help you towards this goal. 

Self-Sufficient YOU! 

A twelve month, learn as you please, programme to speed up your journey to being more self-sufficient.

What you'll get:

  • Learn to forage for wild food.  Understand the advantages, and cautions plus discover a four step process to be 100% sure you are foraging safely.
  • Make most of your own toiletries.  Understand why it's important to make-your-own plus get Di's key concepts to follow for making simple toiletries from what is around you without any special equipment.
  • Grow more, naturally by learning to design your plot working with nature.  Increase the bounty of your plot using clever planning and design.
  • A live rag-rag rugging class from home.  Make rugs and cushion covers from old clothes.

What Else Does This Offer include...?

  • A Solo Tipi Site Stay!  Become more personally self-reliant with a two night solo tipi stay to put it all into practice*
  • Two Zoom meet-ups with the other members**
  • A private one to one lesson with Di, in anything you want during your tipi stay, this could be navigation, foraging, toiletries, willow or archery or anything from our bitesize list.
  • A 20 minute onboarding consultation by phone or Zoom to plot your self-reliance journey.

*Solo Tipi Stay for Two Nights

In order to put all you are learning into practice we encourage you to take a solo trip to us to enjoy a two night tipi stay on your own (included).  Foraging for your food, and gathering wood, cooking over fire, reading by candlelight and enjoying the peace of the silence that two days and nights bring.  For this stay you will have access to a session of your choice from any of our bite-sized sessions whether you choose:

  • archery
  • a forage
  • making a natural toiletry item
  • or a wild medicine
  • leather notebook or pouch
  • a small fence from willow
  • natural navigation skills
  • simple lock-picking
  • a permaculture design session for your plot...
  • or even martial arts defence moves!

 The rest of the time is yours to forage, read, walk, swim in the canal...

 **Two Zoom meet-ups over the course with the other members of the programme and Di to check in how you have been doing on the journey to a more Self-Sufficient YOU!  For each meet up we will aim to have a goal to work towards, tailored to your specific aims.

This course has been set to a year in length to encourage you to find the time to do it.  No one ever regretted increasing their self-reliance but many people don't find the time to dedicate to the journey.  Sometimes we have to prioritise US!

What People Are Saying:

Di's knowledge is astounding, she is the perfect mentor for growth. If you are looking for inspiration and education for how to be self-sufficient you can't get better, not only can she walk the talk she is clearly an academic in her way of teaching her vast knowledge yet humble in her personality. I have done a total of six programmes and am fully on the self-sufficiency journey and stronger in myself thanks to her school and teachings.
