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 and 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 am passionate about helping people rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. 

To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone.

Plants have stories that reconnect us to the Land and the rest of Nature.

As our society evermore disconnects, there is a revivalist movement flourishing like a rhizome.

This ancient path of the forager reconnects us to the vital, to wildness, to what is in effect the very pulse of life itself.

One of the most direct ways to experience this is to consume this wildness.

Take it into our bodies, where like a sleeper agent, it lies dormant until you have eaten enough to change the structure of your blood, thereby changing your brain and how you relate to the non-human world.

For it is this simple act. The act of taking wild food and medicine into our body, in time becomes so transformative.

This is not a harking back to some naive, romantic vision of how we might once have lived.

But a way to sense into the future and understand our place, as a species, within the world.

More Kind Words From Customers

Vital for foragers. An excellent guide for both novices and ancient experienced foragers like me. Heartily recommended. – The Black Widow Consultancy

The book is wonderful! The medicinal and food uses are really useful – perfectly to the point. The combination of history and practical really appealed to me. I don’t need to read forever about something, I got the book because I wanted something to use here and now. It contains exactly the right amount of information for me. – Helen N

A great book – straightforward useful information, and the free downloadable identification is really beautiful and full of four pics of each plant so you can be really clear about your ID. Highly recommended. – S. Ravenscroft

This is a brilliant little book. Absolutely stuffed with information about so many of our native plants, and how to use them in cooking and medicine. Fantastic for forest school too – if our children see the wider value in our natural environment they are much more likely to respect and care for it. – Mrs. L. A. O’Sullivan

Very enjoyable to read. Entertaining as well as informative. A brilliant synopsis of what one would learn from a course on medical plants in the Botanical Gardens. Wish I had that book when I was taking that course in Edinburgh in 2009. – E.C. Packham
