Garden rewilding course
in the heart of Sussex

About this session

Embark on a journey into the wild with our Garden Rewilding Course in Sussex. Join David, an award-wining wildlife photographer, filmmaker and naturalist, as he shares experience, and his theories on how to effectively encourage wildlife into your own garden.

Let’s face it, we don’t all have a castle and thousands of acres to rewild, so this workshop is aimed at people with any garden plot size

David will reveal how he converted his flat, short-turf plot into the wildlife haven it is today, featured  fascinating research on garden and woodland birds, and showcases practical demos on crafting plant supports and sustainable propagation methods. We’re handing you the secrets to Sussex gardening magic!

What you’ll learn

  • The essence of wildlife gardening
  • Biodiversity to bio-abundance
  • Planting for butterflies and other insects

Secure your spot and join David for a day of rewilding and gardening wisdom!

People Say

I live on Sussex Downland and had no idea of the potential for increasing biodiversity net gain in my own garden. I'm excited to start implementing David's ideas for creating and improving natural habitats and wildlife opportunities in my garden in the years to come.

Do I need to be an advanced photographer?

Some courses are specifically for beginners and other are more specialised for those with intermediate skills.

1 to 1 courses can be bespoke to cater for specific needs.

Most hides, do not require advanced skills, but this may depend on the shots you want.

Please note, hiring  a hide set-up does not include supervision.

What are the terms and conditions?

It is assumed that you have read and agree with these terms and conditions at time of booking. And that you understand that by booking a wildlife hide, you are fully aware that there are no guarantees with wildlife. Read our T&Cs in full.

What guarantees are there for photographing a particular species?

All possible measures are taken to maximise a photographer’s chances of photographing a particular species and David’s track record of achieving this is very high.

Occasionally with this sort of hide setup, for no predictable reason, the birds just stop coming in. David will never place anyone to the hide when he thinks they have little chance of getting a target species. Therefore, in the event of the hide ceasing to work, your session will be rearranged to a mutually agreeable date. Hopefully this will not be for long. Please note, refunds will not be given under this circumstance, as it could just be a temporary change in the birds behaviour, which may soon resume. 

You may be informed of this the evening before your event, based on the previous day’s shoot.
