About Di

Di Wood (Hammill). Was raised by her Grandfather and Father in an unconventional upbringing for a little girl in the seventies.  A childhood that necessitated teaching herself self-reliance skills led to a university post-graduate education in Criminal Psychology and teaching at college.  Three children later, Di had given up academia to raise her children alone and off-grid in a remote North Yorks Dale and a return to work in teaching again but this time in the natural lifestyle skills that was her lifestyle.  They had no heating, loo, or running hot water, living in a green painted caravan in a five acre field,  they lived very simply using what was around them.

Happy customers.

Wild Harvest was a really valued aspect of our Riverside Arts Festival. We aim to provide activities which are accessible to all ages, work with natural or recycled materials and offer participants an opportunity for creative exploration. Wild Harvest brought us all of these things and were also lovely people to have around!

School of Self-Reliance

I had my surprise hen party last weekend here at the lovely Wild Harvest. We camped in the wooden yurts  and had plenty of  & !! The crafts we did were flower crowns and beeswax lip balms, both were so much fun. Di was a wonderful hostess and a lovely teacher, full of knowledge, a very inspirational woman!! I personally loved the log burners  and pizza ovens!! The pizzas we had were gorgeous cooked in the ovens. The kitchen area was spot on!! Loved the eco friendly feel to the setting !! Though it was rainy  and soggy all weekend, I had the best time. The beautiful surroundings, the fantastic setting with all the amenities you’d need, and the company were next to none. The ducks  and chickens  freely wandering added to the atmosphere. I’d love to come again!! Thank you to my gorgeous Hens for arranging and for bringing everything, and thank you to Di
