_DSC9378 (1)During Bristol foraging walks and courses which last around three hours, we will be identifying, picking and eating a number of delicious edibles that present themselves along the way.  There will be discussion about seasonal eating and the nutritional values and medicinal use of plants.  We will also look at the conservation of species and their habitats, what to take and what to leave.  And of course there’s use and storage of wild food, recipes and lots, lots more. Although most foraging walks take place in Bristol, other events happen further afield; Bath, Somerset, Wiltshire, Clevedon, Hampshire and South Wales. Most walks and courses are in The West Country

To arrange a foraging walk near where you live, for a private group, be it a stag or hen do, company away day or if you have any ideas for a foraging related event,  please contact me directly.  I have previously taught chefs, worked with restaurants, country houses and estates as well as hotels. I often collaborate with organisations delivering wellbeing packages for retreats and festivals. I work with permaculture courses, biodynamic and organic farms and have given joint talks with forest gardeners. I regularly deliver foraging walks and courses to schools, scouts groups, forest schools, catering colleges, community organisations, and other youth groups. I am also going to be working with Enliven Project next year to bring nature connection and foraging to dementia patients and their loved ones. I am also currently collaborating with yoga, pilates and qi gong practitioners to teach holistic workshops and retreats. I’m available for live streamed events, webinars and ‘virtual’ foraging walks too. I’m very passionate about wholefood cooking, working with the best seasonal wild ingredients to create food that nourishes us on every level and that looks and tastes amazing too!

You can book me for private friends or family group bookings with cost ranging from £350. For corporate events please contact me for a quote. You can get in touch with me here if you’d like to book a wild food foraging day.
