Tangier Wood – Gold Residential – Off Grid Woodland Management & Conservation – July 2024

We (Jodie and Jordan) have been working to regenerate Tangier Wood, a 10acre semi-ancient woodland, since 2016.

As a DofE Participant, you’ll play a hands-on role in supporting the re-growth and health of its native tree species and natural habitats. You’ll have a fully immersive, off-grid experience – empowered with freedom of action to build the confidence and capabilities to sustain yourself and the woodland resources.

You’ll develop your outdoor skills to comfortably live and look after yourself off-grid; make tools in our woodland blacksmithing forge and skin a deer with our Licensed Game Keeper. You’ll learn about woodland sustainability and biodiversity, and sustainable woodland management, enabling you to work your own patch of woodland in line with the goals you set for yourself and your team. Jordan will dig into his 22yr military experience to offer up bonus skills such as tracking and natural navigation.

You can also have a crack at axe-throwing and archery. You’ll achieve your John Muir Discover Award – a nationally recognised environmental award – as part of your DofE experience. You’ll be camping for the 5 days with plenty of time to cook, relax and socialise around the fire.
