Foraging, Folklore, Wild Food & Wild Medicine. Courses, Workshops & Walks

backlighting, dandelion, sun

I offer in-person courses, walks and workshops in the practice and principles of foraging, plant lore, wild food identification, preparation and preservation, wild medicine making and folk herbalism.

These courses are underpinned by personal responsibility and an understanding of the sovereignty of all beings; plants, animals, humans, microbes, rocks, and rivers.

The principles of equality and nature connectedness are of vital importance to everything I teach, but particularly in foraging we must ensure we are in right relationship with nature.

We must enter into and be in a space of respect, gratitude, and connection before engaging in this work. In foraging with care and attention we are fostering and remembering our sacred relationship with the land.

On my courses you will learn the principles of how to forage safely and respectfully. How to leave no trace, take only a small amount and no more than you know you will use.

You will learn about some edible and medicinal plants which we find on our walk, and I will share my knowledge of plant medicines and folklore. 

I run these walks in the woods, salt marshes, fields, beaches, and hedgerows of Suffolk, Essex, and Norfolk. If you have a group who would like to learn the ancient practice of foraging please get in touch and we can organise an event, check out the upcoming events below, or get in touch to book me for a private event.
