Jake is a passionate conservationist and bush craft teacher specializing in edible and medicinal native and introduced plants. Jake is fast becoming known as one of the foremost authorities on edible and medicinal plants and openly admits he is obsessed with learning about the various uses of plants. Jake has spent most of life fine tuning his survival knowledge in what he calls "The University of the Bush".
Jake has taught himself much of what he knows through personal experience going out and living off the land for weeks at a time and from his extensive amount of books and documentaries he has acquired (over 20 years) on native and exotic plants and their traditional uses. Jake has spent literally hundreds of nights in the Australian bush and has been blessed to spend time with much respected elders in NSW and Central and Western Australia. Jake has also given presentations along with well known people in Botany/conservation such as Les Robinson, Alan Fairley and Costa Georgiadis.
Always accompanied by his canine counterpart, "Benson" the Staffy Cross, Jake has performed bush tucker presentations, tours and camps for a variety of community groups and organisations. Some of these include presentations and/or tours for Pre-Schools, Primary and High Schools T.A.F.Es, Sydney (Western) and Newcastle Universities, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers, Army Survival Instructors, Gosford Show, Peats Ridge Festival, Dragon Dreaming Festival, Subsonic Festival, R.E.G.E.N and many more.
Jake's presentations/tours are interactive, engaging and include a comprehensive display of native and exotic plants and an in-depth description of some of the plants uses. Jake will share information on how to make rope out of tree bark, fire from sticks, soap from Wattle leaves and much more.
