Hi I'm the founder of Babes in the Woods! I'm passionate about spending time outdoors and years of teaching buschcraft & survival-skills have inspired this business. I've also worked as a mediator and psychotherapist and know that quality time with girlfriends, and celebrating in style is food for the soul!
I grew up in the bush-land of South Africa where I spent time barefoot playing with insects and snakes! With a focus on wellbeing, I've spent the last decade as CEO of a charity supporting vulnerable adults through waste redistribution. I'm now delighted to join Babes as it reminds me of the magic and freedom of being back in the bush! http://larakatewhite.weebly.com
Hetti's co-pilot since the birth of Babes, I'm totally inspired by our natural world and hold a deep connectiveness with all of its' inhabitants. Much to my delight, Babes enables me to share this with others in a very fun and heartfelt way. Outside of the wild woods I'm a Forest School Facilitator and therapist.
Setting up camp outdoors is one of my favourite things to do: I love cooking on fires, sleeping under the stars and waking up to birdsong and dappled sunlight through the trees. Outside of the woods I'm a massage therapist and a yoga teacher with a particular interest in finding ways of coming into relationship with our wilder nature.
I love working with women in the woods to share my love of nature! I am passionate about 're-wilding' and re-skilling humans, reconnecting to how our ancestors lived in harmony with nature and re-learning ancient survival techniques. Outside of Babes I work with trees, as an arboriculturist (tree surgeon!) and on an organic market garden. http://www.soil-carbon-regeneration.co.uk/
I'm passionate about combining science, art and intuition, and drawing upon rich indigenous knowledge to create sustainable life choices. I have founded 'The Field of our Dreams' a project where people may learn about and benefit from our environment exploring natural homes to humble soil! I work part time for Babes which I love.

As a Babes Host I know what a magical space the woods provide for people to connect. Women who come here are soon sitting around the campfire sharing stories and playing games. My dream is for everyone to have their own powerful relationship with nature. I enjoy dancing, swimming in the sea and sitting round a campfire with close friends.
I'm a country-girl from Dorset where I spent time exploring woodlands, hedgerows and poking about in streams. Early on I learnt the names of plants and insects, how to read animal signs and how to forage for edibles. I'm excited to be interning with Babes - it's the start of a career change into conservation that I've dreamt of for years!
I was brought up near Bromesberrow and it remains very magical to me. I trained with the Bristol College of Massage & Bodywork and I love massage & nature, each massage is tailored to you...it's your massage! I always use Organic products in my treatments. www.unfoldmassage.com
