Rewild in the City


Rewild in the City

The Phoenix Park is awaiting your discovery…

Here is home to deer, mice, badgers, foxes, buzzards, sparrowhawks, owls & squirrels. A place rich in tree and plant life, as well as fungi, lichens & mosses.

In this abundant playground we will reclaim our food and medicine, cultivate our childhood curiosity and expand our awareness through the learning of ancestral skills, nature connection activities and community building.

Each month, we will focus on a new theme or skill which connects us to our environment, as well as to our ancestral past and a more sustainable future.

Themes (may change as we work with nature who is beautiful & unpredictable)

October: Wild dyes & inks

November: Wildlife tracking & awareness activities (Deer rut)

December: Prehistoric lighting techniques

January: Bone craft & tools

February: Weaving with trees & plants

March: Fish skin tanning

April: Wild Food & medicine

May: Fire craft

June: Bark basketry & root work


Suitable for ages 16+


Lucy O'Hagan is the founder of Wild Awake & Phoenix Forest School. She is an ancestral skills teacher, ethnobotanist and forest school practitioner. She is currently the highest qualified Wildlife tracker in Ireland, holding a level 3 certificate from the Cybertracker system. This summer she is taking part in a 3 month stone age immersion project in Sweden, aiming to live in a community with as little modern gear as possible. She is passionate about rewilding and rekindling the skills and knowledge we once knew so intimately which connect us to this land, each other and ourselves.


The class takes place at our woodland site in the Furry Glen area of the Phoenix Park, Dublin.
