Over-attached to technology and cosseted in our homes, the Western world has never been so disconnected from nature.
Rewild Your Life is here to help you tune up your innate connection to the great outdoors. Through 52 seasonal indoor and outdoor projects, adventure writer and wild swimming enthusiast Sarah Stirling shows you how connecting more deeply with the natural world is key to keeping the environment alive, while simultaneously bringing the joy and wonder back into every day.
Projects range from spoon carving to foraging in the hedgerows, making and mending to natural navigation and growing vegetables. You can follow these projects week by week for a year, or flick through the book to find ideas you'd like to try – many are achievable all year round.
Whether you're an outdoor expert or a novice, eight years old or eighty, there's plenty in here for you.
