Bushcraft Seedling Course – NIsurvival – Ballymena

NI Survival are running a Bushcraft Seedling Course later this month and again in October.

NI Survival are running a Bushcraft Seedling Course later this month and again in October. The Seedling course introduces participants to a range of bushcraft skills in the local setting of Galgorm Castle.

Here are more details from the team at NI Survival:

There are four Seedlings to match the seasons. Each Seedling will focus on the relevant season and deliver a different experience . It is possible for a student to go on all 4 Seedling courses over the year and accelerate their skill and knowledge development.

​The Bushcraft Seedling Course has been developed over 10 years and is now a 2 day course with an overnight stay out surrounded by nature. We felt this was important as it allows for a more rounded experience. Students can now enjoy a chat and banter around the camp fire at night after a long day of learning skills. Stories can be told and friendships can be formed before retiring for a night out under the stars. Awaken to the sounds and smells of the woods in the morning.

The Seedling course

We will cover a range of different Bushcraft skills on this course we have included some of fundamentals below. This isn’t an exhaustive list and other skills will be covered when time allows.
