Wild Pickings is a small rural business run by me, Jade Mellor. I have been a professional forager for fourteen years, collecting wild food from the beautiful hedgerows, woodlands and coast of West Wales. I pick what is seasonally abundant, with care and sensitivity, always leaving plenty to go to seed and for the birds.
I am inspired by the landscape, the changing seasons and the wild bounty of blossoms, leaves, fruits and seaweeds, which I use to create delicious and unique food.
I run seasonal walks and workshops, teaching others how to identify, gather and use wild food. I'm also available for private and group bookings.
I am also part of the Elemental Adventures team, a community interest company and not for profit social enterprise.
Elemental adventures offers a range of nature based activities focused on reconnecting people with nature: exploring outdoor play and learning, forest school, bushcraft, mindfulness, music and natural arts & crafts.
