About Wild Pickings CIC
We are a small, rural, community interest company based near Cardigan, West Wales.
We are focused on connecting people with the natural world through foraging and nature based activities.
Our founder, Jade Mellor has been a professional forager for sixteen years, and recently completed a foundation in Medical Herbalism. After running Wild Pickings for the past 14 years as a sole trader she partnered with many different organisations, charities, businesses and individuals, and was able to gain much experience and many opportunities to work on a wide range of projects with a diverse range of people.
Earlier this year Jade decided to join forces with a group of people she has collaborated with over this period, and together we have set up a community interest company so that we can focus on affordable workshops in our community,
We are comprised of people who are passionate about nature connection and celebrating the natural world.
