SATURDAY 29TH MAY - 10.45am to 4.00pm


Jake Cassar Bushcraft (JCB) presents Australia's only 'Plant-based Survival Crash Course' - A One Day course suited to anyone wishing to learn more about medicinal and edible wild plants in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

JCB acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and Elders past, present and emerging. JCB strives to interact with the land and all its inhabitants with the utmost respect.

This is a 5 hour Crash Course with plenty of information for everyone to help them to get started on their journey of sustainable foraging and bushcraft skills.

NOTE: Be sure to bring a notepad and pen, as you will need to take LOTS of notes to keep up with the volume of information you receive.

Being a Crash Course, the idea is to cram as much info re edible and medicinal plants into a short time frame. So be prepared for A LOT of info.
Held at Ironbark Bushcamp in the picturesque rural town of Mangrove Mountain (approx 60 minutes from Sydney). We can car pool for the event.

ThIs course is only suitable for ages 16+. Sorry no kids

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. 

The cost of the course is being subsidised by Permaculture Sydney North and is for Members only.

*** About Jake Cassar ***

Jake has been described as an encyclopedia of bush knowledge, earning this reputation by spending months at a time living in the bush and subsiding largely from only what he can hunt, catch and gather.

Jake has worked with Aboriginal groups across Australia, former military trackers, and also did a week of training with American tracking legend, Tom Brown junior.

With over 25 years of experience doing survival missions into remote areas, Jake is considered by many to be one of Australia's foremost authorities on edible and medicinal wild plants.

As a conservationist, tracker and bushcraft teacher, Jake has featured on the History Chanel, BBC Radio (International) SBS (The Feed), ABC, Triple J Radio, National Indigenous Television, the Today Show on Chanel 9 and many more.

A political activist and award winning conservationist known for significant environmental wins including creating new #NationalParks on the #CentralCoast and protecting other large areas of bushland, Jake's personal stories are sure to captivate and inspire.

Jake is raw, upbeat, authentic (albeit a bit rough around the edges) and will take you on a journey of discovery that is GUARANTEED to change the way you look at the Aussie bush forever!

For our love of this ancient land!

"We all have a role to play in creating a safe and sustainable future for our children. Indeed it is our ultimate responsibility." Jake Cassar
