James Gaydon - Born in the Sussex Countryside James grew up loving the green fields and woodland areas that became his playground. Making bow and arrows from hazel rods and bale twine, optimistically digging bear traps, collecting clay from river banks to make pots and forever trying to catch wild rabbits was his childhood. As a teenager he learnt from his older farmer friends how to truly respect and appreciate the fauna and flora and better understand the natural environment. James is a forest school teacher and experienced bushcraft instructor. He is a keen spoon whittler and often raises eyebrows when he is spotted at the side of the road harvesting roadkill venison!
