The Bilberries (Vaccinium myrtillus) this year are far smaller than last but still worth gathering. And Bilberries make the most amazing coloured and flavoured smoothie as this recipe shows.
I harvested my Bilberry in the quiet of a pine wood, wind blowing through the trees, birdcall ringing out, and the sun beaming through the tree tops to warm me as I crouch down by a bush laden with fruit. Not another human around. It’s moments like this that make foraging so special.

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.
I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.
I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.
