WILD FOOD WALKS
the hunter-gatherer way
I believe that gathering wild food has the power to transform people
by connecting us to what we love most.
Wild food is Nature's key to our freedom, everyday.
You don't have to dig or prepare the soil, you don't have to sow or weed
or watch slugs eat all your produce.
You just watch Mother Nature do her work and then, when it's
ready, all you have to do is to gather.
And if you are taught well and you know how to gather it properly, you will create
twice as much wild food for tomorrow.
But, the journey to learn these plants is not easy, there are poisonous
look-a-likes that can burn, permanently scar,
asphyxiate, destroy organs, induce coma, and kill.
That's where I can help.
HALF-DAY taster wild food walks,
or on an INTENSIVE course of 10 week-ends through the whole year.
WILD FOOD WALKS
To introduce you to the plants of each season,
I take you on a slow walk through a south Devon village.
I teach you the edible next to the poisonous look-a-likes.
We taste, touch, smell and observe each edible plant carefully
and then you have a look for them and I check them.
You take home a portion of wild food to eat in a salad, pesto or soup.
And you take home a colour illustrated booklet of all that we find
so that you don't have to take notes.

Each half-day walk costs £35 per adult and £15 per child between the age of 11 and 18.
The walks are not suitable for younger children.
There is a 10% discount for group bookings of 5 or more adults if all paying together.

OVER 10 WEEK-ENDS
If you're really determined to learn these plants,
this intensive course teaches you in depth and with constant repetition over 10 week-ends,
once a month from February to November.
You arrive on Friday late afternoon and stay until tea-time on Sunday.
The group is no bigger than 12 people.
You stay together in bunkhouses during bad weather and camp together during warm weather
with the teaching done in a beautiful bell tent warmed by a wood burning stove.
You eat delicious meals that I cook and then teach you how to prepare
using the wild food we have gathered.
We follow our ancient hunter-gatherer migration route which I discovered
through years of work piecing together my experiences of eating wild food.
There is a strong emphasis on teaching you so that you can teach others.
As places are limited and there has been a very high demand for this course,
you will be asked to complete an application form as part of a selection process.
Please email me on email@example.com for more information.
Including meals and accommondation price on application.
Inorder to meet the challenges of the future I don't believe we need oil or gas or metal we just need to know that we
belong here and how we can play our part in Nature.
THE HUNTER-GATHERER WAY Putting Back the Apple
I've written a book about my discoveries and reading it before coming on a walk will greatly enhance and deepen
your experience on the day. It is a pre-requisit to the Intenstive Course.
The book has reached over 17 countries so far with some amazing reviews, a few of which I have posted on the
REVIEWS tab found at the top of this page.

and it's surprisingly easy to adopt large aspects of it in modern day life.
