Tricia Edgar

Tricia is passionate about connecting people with natural places. For more than 20 years, she has worked as a nature educator, developing programs that explore the streams, forests, plants and animals of the temperate rainforest. She is a permaculture teacher and a writer who focuses on science and sustainability. When she is not working and learning and writing about the outdoors, you can find her hanging out with her daughter, running, gardening, or caring for her menagerie of pets. She enjoys traveling to amazing natural places and sharing them with her daughter. She also loves stomping in the mud!

Daniella Roze

Daniella has studied and taught at wilderness schools across North America and is a graduate of the Anake Outdoor School at Wilderness Awareness School and the Depth Mentoring Apprenticeship at Twin Eagles Wilderness School. Through her time living among indigenous people in West Africa, as well as her 5 years spent living completely off the grid during which time she built several cabins by hand, she brings a depth of experience. She travelled in the mountains for an entire month with the Living Wild School and subsisted on wild foods with only buckskin clothes and stone tools. Daniella holds a diploma in counseling and creates a holistic environment for passionate learning, resilient community building, and soulful living. The natural world is one of Daniella’s greatest teachers.
