ABOUT WILD & CURIOUS FORAGING

Wild & Curious Foraging activities are led by wild edible plant specialist Myrtle Cooper, who has been teaching foraging since 2014 following the completion of an MSc in Ecological Food Systems, where Myrtle specialised in developing work and teaching with wild food in ways that powerfully connect people back with the land, and understanding an ancient way of supporting our own wellbeing, physically and emotionally.

 

Myrtle is passionate about connecting people with wild plants and the great outdoor larder, and facilitating a sensory and immersive approach to learning about wild edible plants.

 

Food that calls to the Wild Things inside us.  

 

Myrtle leads wild food walks, day courses for those wishing to get to know plants in more depth through craft, cookery and nature re-connection activities, and offers courses in collaboration with other outdoor leaders.

 

WILD FOOD WALKS & EVENTS

South Devon has a beautiful and diverse range of wild plants, from the hedgerow & woodland, to open meadows and coastal areas. The plants inhabiting these spaces have some incredible stories to tell, and a Wild & Curious Foraging walk or adventure will introduce you to the art of foraging safely, and how this ancient practice can nourish our bodies and minds.

CONNECTING BACK WITH NATURE

Spending time in the great outdoors is proven to improve our health and wellbeing. We encourage a re-connection with the beauty of our natural world through working mindfully and sustainably with wild food.
