A brand new podcast for the members of Wilderness Wood. In this episode we talk with Dan for the first time to learn about the progress in the woods in November 2019 and his intentions for December. We also sit down with one of the most familiar faces in the Wood, Jake Reed, to chat about the Hórreo cabin, the Winter Solstice Celebration and his favourite thing about the woods! Katy plays us a beautiful song called “The Boat Man” on her banjo and Nina tells us about a new species of plant in the wood! All this and more in this first episode of The Wilderness Podcast!
