Outdoor Cooking

 thrive in the wild
Dartmoor | 25TH - 30TH APRIL 2023

a stunning 6 day journey FROM THE FOREST TO THE SEA

We can't wait to share this entirely unique two-part adventure with you.


Our journey starts in the beautiful wild woods of Dartmoor, where we'll be learning to thrive in the wild through foraging, learning how to create and nurture fire and wild-cooking. From here our journey takes us on foot from the high tors of Dartmoor to the sea,  camping along the way. We journey by foot, steam train and finally by canoe along the river. This is a 6 day adventure of moving slowly and purposefully through the stunning wild and varied landscapes of Dartmoor, and the river Dart.

This is a journey of learning how to thrive in the wild

Your adventure is led by our founder Josh, in collaboration with Alex, a Dartmoor native, and passionate expert. Alex grew up in Chagford, and has been engrossed in his local wilds ever since. He’s been teaching bushcraft professionally since 2015. He leads treks worldwide and has walked the length of New Zealand. For Alex, spending time in the woods, living off the land, is what matters the most.

This adventure is open to everyone! Whether you're a solo adventurer, a couple, friends or family, everyone is welcome. And while we'll be getting pretty remote and wild, there is no experience required, we'll look after you. 


part one: LIVE WILD- 3 nights


A wilderness living experience in a special woodland in Dartmoor National Park. We'll be based in a magical forest, sleeping in comfy bell tents among the trees. We'll cook together over fire, and spend time learning skills such as foraging and fire craft, as well as building our connection with our environment to help us not only survive, but to thrive in the wild. While at our base we'll spend some time contributing to the conservation of a local woodland and wildflower meadow, and we will of course get involved in some wild swimming and mindfulness to foster a deeper connection with ourselves, with each other, and with the wild.

Accommodation: Comfy bell tents in the woods

Food: All meals are local seasonal produce, cooked on the fire

(including whatever we have foraged that day)


Evening Activities:

- Sustainability talk from local expert

- Night walk and star gazing


Part Two: A journey to the sea - 2 nights

Departing our woodland home we begin on foot, mindfully hiking across Dartmoor, wild-swimming and playing along the way before we take a steam-train from Buckfastleigh to Totnes. At Totnes we grab our canoes and paddle our way down to Dartmouth, and the sea. Our exact itinerary will be based around the tides, and weather, and will finish with a special ceremony of thanks. This journey is a magical immersion in the variety of environments at play in this remarkable part of the world.


Accommodation: campsites, camping barns or wild camping (all tents and cooking kit provided by The Living Project)

Food: Simple hiking food, locally sourced, cooked by us for you, (although you're welcome to get involved!)
