A Bit About Greg

Greg Power has been involved in adult education for over 15 years has been teaching bushcraft for the past ten years. Greg is a qualified educator and qualified as a Bushcraft Instructor in 2005. Since then he has run his own team building and bespoke courses in the tranquility of the woods, sharing his passion for the outdoors with adults and children alike. Growing up in a small Somerset village, Greg has been fascinated with the British countryside ever since he can remember. Time in the British Army allowed him to see many different countries and this simply confirmed his belief that our country holds the best wild areas in the world with a huge catalogue of flora and fauna to delve into. Greg also creates beautiful hand crafted items using British hard woods including wooden bowls, boards and salad hands. Greg lives with his wife Jess and children in the beautiful Somerset countryside and often spends quality time outside being inspired by nature.
