JT Beggs

WILD SERIES INSTRUCTOR

JT’s connection to nature was fully realized as soon as he was old enough to cover himself in dirt. Since then he has found nearly every excuse to deeply immerse himself in the ocean, the garden and the wild lands that he calls his home. JT has spent over six weeks of his life living off of exclusively wild foods and loves finding ways of getting wild plants into every aspect of his life. He finds no greater satisfaction than in living a life close to nature filled with crafts, foods, stories and music which is why he loves Quail Springs so much. He also has a deep respect of traditional cultures and is constantly engaging his curiosity in this subject, as is said in Irish “Aoibhinn beatha an scoláire” – beautiful is the life of the scholar.
