About Me

My Journey

Wild Pickings is a small rural business run by me,  Jade Mellor.  I have been a professional forager for fifteen years, and recently completed a foundation in Medical Herbalism.

 I  gather what is seasonally abundant from the beautiful hedgerows, woodlands and coast of West Wales.  I  collect 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 weave into delicious and unique food, medicine and skin care creations.

 I run seasonal walks and workshops, teaching others how to identify, gather and use wild plants. 

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 which offers a range of nature based activities focused on reconnecting people with nature.
