WILD FOOD WALKS
the hunter-gatherer way
Are you longing to go out and gather wild food for your supper?
Do you wish you knew the edible leaves, flowers, berries, nuts, roots,
lichens, fungi, seaweeds & seashore plants to add to your cooking
for amazing flavours and to feel a deep connection with Nature?
Have you been frustrated by looking at identification books but the photos never
seem to give quite enough information to be absolutely sure?
Are you concernd about making a mistake and poisoning yourself?
Then that's where I can help!
I teach Half Day courses and I run a Year Long course of 10 week-ends.
I can teach you how to correctly identify the wild food from the poisonous by showing you them side-by-side
and running through all the failsafe characteristics to look for and simple ways of how to remember
them so you don't make mistakes.
And I can teach you the clever clues as to where to find them so that you can
eat wild food all year long.
I was taught by Aborigines, Bushmen, Pygmies and a great outdoorsman
and I have applied myself daily for the last 15 years to the task of learning the wild foods of Britain.
I've done the hard work for you, so if you want to learn right, first time, then lay down your books,
leave your frustrations behind and step out into the wild with me
and let me be your guide for a life-time of adventure.
WILD FOOD COURSES
To introduce you to some of the plants of each season,
I take you on a slow walk in a south Devon village or by the sea or along the river.
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 make notes or take photographs.

WILD FOOD COURSE
If you're really determined to learn these plants,
investing in this intensive course teaches you in depth and with constant repetition over 10 week-ends,
one week-end a month from February to November.
It will give you the confidence to gather wild food in your area all year round and tin so doing to discover a world around
you that comes alive, enchants you, feeds you, inspires you and gives the rest of your life an abundance of adventures that cost
nothing more but feels like they're made of pure gold.
It will give you a wealth of knowledge to pass on to future generations and a sense of rightness about
your work and the legacy of your life.
This is not a survival course. I believe that people learn best when they are comfortable and well fed.
You will be taught in an atmosphere of support and encouragement with ongoing back-up through the month.
In this way you will soon be able to feel your confidence growing so that
it becomes second nature to you to go out on your own and select the plants that are good to eat.
You arrive on Friday evening and stay until tea-time on Sunday.
The group is about 12 in total, often 6 men and 6 women.
You stay together in bunkhouses during the colder months and camp together in the summer
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 foods 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.
Investment in this course includes all meals and accommondation, 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.

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