    well.. I signed up for this course at the same time as two others.. so knew I had a lot of work to do.. but then was hit by three family bereavements in 8 weeks.. so not done anywhere near as much on GEA as I’d hoped.. but.. things getting back to some sort of normality now.. so..

    March 2016
    My plan is to create a really simple wild food and medicine course to give people the confidence to identify and use a small number of very common plants. I also want talk about history, folklore, interview herbalists, gardeners, chocolatiers and chefs who are using the plants in various ways .. and give people loads of interesting and quirky stories as well as recipes so they get an idea of the ‘personality’ of a plant.

    My current idea is to create several short, self contained courses so there will be something that can be sold all year round. So…’personality’ profiles of a small number of common wild plants like nettles, dandelions, wild garlic, crab apples – kitchen medicines with simple first aid recipes like teas and tinctures using store cupboard ingredients – berries, currants and other fruits including simple jam making and preserving tips – one on food uses of common garden plants like fuchsia, honeysuckle, lavender – maybe one on cooking with flowers – craft/gift ideas with wild plants like herb soaps or lavender chocolates

    I am doing a wild food walk and talk as part of a local story telling festival next month.. so need to get organised for that. The talk has sold out already so have 30 people coming! Nice to know there is so much interest and hope I can get a few more on my email list or recruit some folk to test out and give feedback on my ideas.

    Welcome back to the mountain Jo. Happy to see you continuing on the path. You’ve got a great topic and I do believe there are a lot of people who are interested in learning about this. Definitely connect with @chrisg, @earthtracks and @light because you’ve all got complimentary passions that fit well together 🙂

    Hi Jo, wondering how things are going? You free to get back on the mountain, pick some berries with us, find some wild foods and then build an eCourse sharing the experience? Send us a smoke signal. Let us know how we can support you. Let’s get this important work out into the world!

    Aloha Jo! LOVE what you’re doing!!! Excited to see you on the mountain in the New Year! All things happen for a reason and in the right timing. (I once heard Wayne Dyer say this on a program: Our desires don’t arrive on our schedule, they arrive when they are supposed to. ) Sounds like you are up to some amazing stuff in the meantime!!! I’m sure when you’re back in eCourse production you’ll see how it all comes into play and why it went the way it did. Life’s funny like that. 😉 Keep being awesome, and see you soon!!
