Will Bettison (Wild Beings) has a passion for deepening his relationship with the ecology around him. He uses wild plants in daily life as food and medicine & through experience has built a strong friendship with many of the plants we see around us. He has experience treating his own wounds using various bush medicines that he has either been shown or researched himself & making healing balms to treat close friends. His enthusiasm for Wild plants has inspired those who have attended previous workshops he has facilitated.

Eva (Wild Beings) has been delving into bush foods & medicine for the past few years. With a passion to live simply in symbiosis with the land around us & achieve optimal wellness & health through what nature provides. Eva has delved into the world of wild fermenting recently & is excited to share the art of wild mead fermenting.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians on the lands we walk upon & the age old wisdom of the earth that has been passed down. This knowledge is not new knowledge, we acknowledge the ancient roots of this earth based culture & wish to inspire others to connect with the earth.
