Amy Clarkson

Amy Clarkson is a creative ecology practitioner, working between the realms of rewilding and writing through practice-based research. Facilitating group experiences, including rites-of-passage and family wild camps, she values learning from the land through hands-on experiences of foraging, forest gardening, forest school and community woodlands.
