I am from the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in the UK and do all sorts of things.. I am a homeopath, networker, festival goer, blogger and keen wild food forager and involved in various community projects.
My plan is to create a simple ecourse to give people absolute confidence to identify, pick and use a small number of wild plants for food and medicines.
A lot of what I do in life is sharing knowledge and helping people to help themsleves so I am sure I can use the skills I learn here in all sorts of way to develop other courses in the future.
Looking forward to getting started and getting to know you all on our journey up the mountain 🙂January 9, 2016 at 5:26 am #7987
The Yorkshire Dales are beautiful. Had some lovely holidays there years ago.
Love your idea of identifying wild plants for foods and medicines for confident foraging.
Enjoy the adventure.

Hi, Jo … I love the Yorkshire Dales. I was born in Yorkshire, raised in Canada, but did get to spend a wee bit of time in that area as a teenager. My Mum now lives a bit further north from you in Northumberland. Love your idea of foraging and using wild plants – many of the plants commonly called ‘weeds’, I’m sure fit into your program.
Enjoy the journey.

Some of my relatives came from the Yorkshire Dales, and I’ve visited–and yes. A grand landscape, with lots of sheep and wool as well (my interest). Looking forward to following your progress.January 13, 2016 at 8:38 am #10121

Woohoo, welcome to the adventure Jo! Another wild forager. You’ll have to be sure to point out the edibles as we climb this mountain.
I’ve done a wee bit of wilderness survival training and can hold my own in finding the edibles on the west coast.
I’m stoked to see the course you choose to create!
Thanks for being here.January 13, 2016 at 12:16 pm #10177
Yay! Jo I’m so excited, that would be great. Thanks for agreeing to be my buddy. We can both tick off number 4.
Sooo looking forward to sharing the journey with you and to meeting over a cuppa at some point. : )January 13, 2016 at 1:28 pm #10209
Wow Jo, another adventurer from Yorkshire! That makes 3 of us, what are the odds of that? Where abouts are you? I was brought up near Bingley and regularly visit my parents who still live there. I worked in Leeds for 8 years before moving to Dumfries & Galloway and also spend a lot of time at our holiday cottage in Staithes near Whitby. It’s a small mountain we have here!January 14, 2016 at 3:31 pm #10471
big wave to Louise.. I’m in a little village just outside Settle.. will be coming up towards you soon – we are planning a family trip up to Annan/Dumfries in March .. will message you but if you are around would be great to meet up in person 🙂 or if you are in Bingley maybe me and Sharon can both join you for a cuppa!January 14, 2016 at 3:59 pm #10484
Fantastic! I’m just 30 mins drive west of Dumfries. No worries if dates don’t work out though as I’m also in Yorkshire every month. Look forward to catching up wherever that might be! 🙂
