Jo Rhodes is a homeopath living and working in the Yorkshire Dales who can regularly be found foraging for wild foods and medicines. Her mum was a keen organic gardener and forager so she grew up thinking that comfrey fritters and nettle bhajis were normal… but realises now how unusual that was.
Conversations with friends have made her realise that many people have absolutely no idea about what is safe, and, if they use wild food at all, limit their foraging to very obvious things like nettles and elderflowers.
She strives to give people confidence to find, identify and cook lovely foraged things and also introduce you to some simple herbal medicines that you can use at home.
Her website – Wild Food Woman – is full of interesting resources, so check it out.
