I host foraging walks and workshops on wild plants and their many uses, also on fermentation practices teaching how to preserve and process wild foods. I believe wild and fermented foods are the missing link in our diet for many chronic health conditions and the health benefits are within everyones reach. I've studied biology and environmental science with the Open University, but most of my knowledge is self taught having foraged for food and medicines for family and friends for 30 years and hosting workshops on and off for the past 10.
I've 25 years experience as a youth worker and playleader and as a home educator, I've worked with family groups. I'm keen to work with more community groups, local food projects, organic farms, schools, home ed groups.
I love to encourage people to invite the wild into their garden as well as experience wild places, I believe the plants that benefit us the most tend to follow us wherever we go and we should honour that relationship as well as venturing out to meet the more elusive species.
I live and work in Aberdeenshire but will happily facilitate walks and workshops in Moray too.
