Hello, and WELCOME to this website!

My name is Chris Holland and I am here to help you develop your connection to nature – your own and the earth we live on – so that we can serve humanity and nature for our greater good.

Sign up for my free storytelling for outdoor learning course here:

Some of the benefits of the re-connecting with nature work I do include:

  • improved physical health, agility and mental wellbeing

  • increased self-esteem and self-reliance

  • learn new craft skills, attitudes and native intelligence

  • gain an understanding of the complex web of life

  • a developed connection to self, others and nature

  • increased empathy, passion & common sense

  • find things to eat in the wild &come into harmony with your being

  • feel at home, find your natural voice and talents 

  • remember we are all part of the land, no better or worse than anything else we share the planet with…

This is a 2min rant for The Wildlife trusts about barriers to outdoor learning and one of my solutions!

I am an environmental educator, author, forager, a playful trainer, storyteller and keynote speaker, didgeridoo player, bushcraft teacher, wild swimmer, forest school leader, barefoot walker and land artist…and also a family man with a wife and three children.

Since 2001 I have been making a living from reminding people that we are part of the land, the nature we live among. I published my first book, I LOVE MY WORLD in 2009 and devised THE NATURAL MUSICIANS system in 2012 So what do I do? I cultivate the connections people have with nature, each other and themselves. I am also passionate about helping teachers take learning outside and making it playful and “edge stretching”. I take classes of children outdoors, train and mentor teachers in nature connection and natural flow learning. I run a wild school for home educating families. I run bushcraft and outdoor play camps for families, away days and team building for corporate groups, lead foraging events and stag do’s. I tell stories and play music round camp fires, enjoy sneaking games, teaching skills and crafts in the woods. I have also written and self-published a best selling nature connection guidebook that is considered “a must for all” by Children’s laureate Michael Morpurgo. It has sold over 5000 copies. I try to get the right balance between work, family time and personal time. I love it when someone lights up as they experience something wonderful. Birdsong lifts my heart and widens my perception. I am grateful when morning sun warms my skin and for the many gifts a day brings. Please explore the site or sign up for a free sample of my book using the form opposite. All the best, Chris
