Hello, and WELCOME to this website!
My name is Chris Holland and I am a storyteller, nature connection facilitator and didgeridoo player.
I help develop your connection to nature – your own and to the earth we live on – so that we can serve humanity and nature for our greater good – through events, workshops, team building, forest school, my book and online digital resources to educators and parents.

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…

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, tow of them now adults.
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 7000 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.
All the best,
