For the first episode of the Go Gather Wild podcast series I was delighted to talk to John Wright. John’s one of my biggest inspirations and his books have been a constant companion along my foraging journey.
Our chat covers everything from easy to make foraging mistakes to making your own Yarrow Gin, a recipe we’re keen to give a go… Enjoy!

Month by month, John shows us what species can be found and where, how to identify them, and how to store, use and cook them. You’ll learn the stories behind the Latin names, the best way to tap a Birch tree, and how to fry an ant, make rosehip syrup and cook a hop omelette.
