INSTRUCTOR

With a passion for wild places and conserving them, Zeki has spent time learning and practicing our ancestral skills, as well as the skills of indigenous peoples, with a view to increasing his knowledge and understanding of the traditional, medicinal and culinary uses of our natural world. Aside from leading courses in the Cairngorms, Zeki’s lifestyle and knowledge have been the subject of several BBC documentaries and he makes his own short films to share that knowledge and to inspire other young people.
