About Wild Harvest School


About Di

Diana Hammill Page was raised by her Grandfather a gunner in the army and her  Father a hippy whose dream was to live in a kibbutz!  ... in an unconventional upbringing for a little girl in the seventies.  A childhood that necessitated teaching herself self-reliance skills led to a university post-graduate education in Criminal Psychology and teaching at college.  Three children later, Di had given up academia to raise her children alone and off-grid in a remote North Yorks Dale and a return to work in teaching again but this time in the natural lifestyle skills that was her way of living.  They had no heating, loo, or running hot water, living in a green painted caravan in a five acre field... 


Di and her kids lived very simply using what was around them.  

About Wild Harvest

Wild Harvest began sixteen years ago with the making and selling of beeswax candles, hedgerow teas and cordials through local tourist shops then evolved into running wild food walks for the National Parks Centres and for the Forestry Commission.  Basket weaving, candle making and rag-rugging days were later added, usually taught from the kitchen table!  Today Wild Harvest has moved to a farm on the outskirts of York and now offers residential courses in all things self-reliance in Nature also offers groups the chance to stay off-grid in Tipis, and learn from a range of the courses they now offer.  A qualified Adult Ed. tutor, Permaculture Designer, Natural beekeeper, Archery GB instructor, Blackbelt in Tae Kwon Do, Survival Medic trained, NNAS Navigation Tutor plus Natural navigation tutor, and a Member of the Association of Foragers, Di is now seen as one of the countries leading experts in simple, natural lifestyle and self-reliance and is often asked to comment in the media or speak at National shows about various aspects of her work.  Wild Harvest School has been wanting to move to teaching online for years, and we are so excited to have the online course platform up.

Wild Harvest are members of the Glamping Association and now help other glamping businesses set up, plus through our sister business Timba.UK we can offer glamping units.
