    Nigel Berman bio

    School of the Wild was founded in 2014 by Nigel Berman. Nigel says, “At the time I was running an online eco-retail business helping people be more sustainable. I’d spent the best part of the previous decade running that business, but retail was changing and I was struggling with the pressures. I became very stressed, slipped a disc, and in truth, lost my purpose... And then I started to spend more time outside. It felt like coming home. I discovered a deep love of nature and wild spaces. I sat round fires that had been made without matches. I learned to make rope from plants, and pots from river clay. I ate wild food and listened more closely to the birds. I met some really interesting people and had meaningful conversations with them, and I noticed how much it changed my mindset and gave me energy for new possibilities.
