Welcome to Go Wild! I’m Jackie and I’m here to guide you on your adventure in the great outdoors.

I first discovered the magic of learning outdoors over a decade ago and have spent the time since learning lots and honing my skills. I’ve worked in all kinds of settings, with children as young as one and adults who are way past collecting their pension. And I’ve loved every minute of it.

Nowadays, I offer accredited Level 3 Forest School training and my women's Rewild Retreat, Fire & Feast outdoor cooking days and much more. I pioneered what has now become The Hawthorn Project, a programme for women in recovery from drug and alcohol misuse now run at Tortworth Forest Centre and I offer Outdoor First Aid Training.

Whether you’re looking to qualify as a forest school leader or just want to learn more about the natural world, make sure your outdoor adventure begins with Go Wild! I’d love to have you along!
