We learn so much having guest tutors on our courses, always popular is the lovely Monica Wilde. In 2021, Monica led our Wild Things 2 students on an epic mushroom foraging walk, The Scottish weather threw a lot at us and we still had a wonderful afternoon learning how to identify edible and not so edible, medicinal and perhaps questionably medicinal. We learnt some tricks to check identification and some tips on processing our mushroom harvest.

  

We’re currently putting together the full programme for walks in 2022 and we’ll definitely be including mushrooms as well as seaweed and tree specific walks as part of Wild Things 2. We had some lovely feedback from our 2021 online class:

“I feel with every session of Wild Things the bulk of the nature around me is sharpened plant by plant, and now when I look around I see leafy friends everywhere, and I’m excited to get to know each one more as the years unfold.”

“Wild Things Year 2 met my expectations and beyond. To be part of a friendly, enthusiastic and supportive group in a safe, nurturing and positive space was a real boost this year and I am very grateful for the opportunity to have been able to learn more and from such passionate, knowledgeable folk!”

There’s still time to enrol for Wild Things 2 or Wild Things 1 – both will be open until the end of February. If you’d like to be kept up to date on all of our courses, please sign up to our newsletter on our website.- scroll to bottom left of our homepage.
