Charlie regularly works with children, adults, professionals and military personnel focussing on the natural world and the importance of our countryside. He is passionate about passing on this information and the fact that, with just a tiny bit of knowledge, the natural world can be so much more interactive and interesting than just fields and trees.
When not instructing he is often found in the woods studying trees and their folklore, plants and their medicinal uses and manufacturing crafts from nature.
