About the event

White Patch - Level 1

Plant-focused Survival Course

The 2 day White Patch course is the level 1 Plant-focused Survival course focusing on fundamental survival skills with a strong emphasis on utilizing edible and medicinal wild plant (Jake's specialty).

This fun, educational and engaging course is guaranteed to change the way you look at the Aussie bush forever!

  • be educated and build confidence in regard to identifying and using edible and medicinal native and introduced plants
  • learn fundamental survival skills (fire, shelter, water and food)
  • establish and maintain a mutually beneficial relationship with the land and all its inhabitants
  • gain important advice on safe and sustainable foraging preparation ideas and tasting wildfood sustainability & environmental awareness
  • campfire stories, music and bushcraft related discussions

🌿The area we do a lot of the activities is right next to where you will park your car, so if you want to camp in or next to your car - it's easy as.

🌿It's worth noting that this is in a fairly remote area where there is no electricity, no amenities (pit toilets) and very limited phone reception. It would be worth making arrangements to let friends and family know that you may not be contactable for the duration of the course.  Telstra & Optus are ok, Vodafone not so much.

Arrive: Saturday 9.45am sharp for a 10am start. (optional early set up on Friday afternoon - meet Jake at 4.30pm).

Finish: Approx 4pm, Sunday

Self Sufficient Camping: You will need to bring your own tent and all camping equipment (including food and water)

To bring: NOTEBOOK & PEN! Warm / cool layers, walking shoes, sun hat, raincoat, bottle of water and food. Please be prepared for colder nights

Food and drink: Bring all your food and water for the weekend. We will have a campfire to cook over if needed

Held at Ironbark Bushcamp at Mangrove Mountain (approx 90 minutes from Sydney) in a beautiful natural setting by Ironbark Creek.

All events go ahead rain, hail or shine!
