I am constantly looking for new events and formats to showcase wild food. Please get in touch if you would like me to:
- Lead a forage in your area for your family/friends/business/community
- Help you or your business access your wild food resources
- Do a talk/interactive presentaion to your group/community/customers
- Consult/research for TV/media
- Contribute an article/guest post
- Demonstrate wild food recipes/cookery
- Organise a stag/hen event
…whatever might suit your business, event or personal interest
In addition to a lifetime of free ingredients, is often possible for chefs/food businesses to offset the cost of tuition by selling specific wild food-based menus/events. For example: Saturday – personalised foraging tuition with Mark for chefs, Sunday – Mark leads organised foray for paying customers followed by meal using wild ingredients.
Please click here for details of tuition.

I am also happy to try to help you identify plants and fungi online – but please read this first.
You can send me an email, a tweet or contact me through facebook if you have any enquiries.

Mobile: 07900 692 478 – I am on the road and in the wilds a lot which makes it hard to manage calls and voicemail. Please make any non-urgent initial contact via email.
Sale of Wild Food
Most species can cope well with careful picking for personal use. There is also huge potential for improving our health and the resilience of local food networks through species/location-appropriate commercial harvesting.
Personally, my days as a full time professional forager selling to up-market kitchens are behind me. I find picking things to order spoils the fun and much prefer to give away or trade any surplus I might have. Money can bring out the worst in people’s foraging instincts. But if you would like to buy/trade any of the wild foods you see on this site for business or personal use, please contact me and I will see what I can do … if I haven’t eaten it all.
But wouldn’t you rather spend your money on tuition and pick your own for evermore…?
