I set up my own business, Wild Pickings, selling seasonal foraged wild foods. I focus on plant ID, gathering, teaching and also on cooking, preparing and eating wild food.

Jade Mellor
Professional Forager, West Wales

After spending some time volunteering on organic farms in Australia, I decided I wanted to work with the land. I wanted practical experience, so chose to study at Hadlow. Studying horticulture was the first step on my journey to working with plants as a profession, giving me confidence to get an allotment and a solid foundation to build upon. I moved to Wales 12 years ago, working as a land agent, selling woodland alongside working part-time gathering wild herbs for a local forager. 8 years ago, I set up my own business, Wild Pickings, selling seasonal foraged wild foods. I focus on plant ID, gathering, teaching and also on cooking, preparing and eating wild food.
