An evening with Mo Wilde

July 1 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

£8.00 – £20.00

Join us for an evening with Mo Wilde to discuss her new book: The Wilderness Cure
Friday, July 1st – 7:30pm in the Book-ish loft
Tickets with book £20 | without book £8


MO WILDE is a forager, research herbalist, author and ethnobotanist. She lives in West Lothian in a self-built eco house on 4 organic acres, where she encourages medicinal and foraging species to thrive in a wild, teaching garden. She has been teaching foraging formally since 2005.

After many years travelling she settled in Britain. She ran Napiers, Scotland’s oldest and most trusted herbal medicine company, and achieved a Masters degree in Herbal Medicine at the age of 50. Mo is a Fellow of the Linnean Society, a founding Member of the Association of Foragers, a Member of the British Mycological Society and a Member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). She practices at Napiers Claid Clinic specialising in integrative medicine in the treatment of Lyme disease, lectures in herbal medicine and teaches foraging courses.


In a world disconnected from its roots, eating wild food is both culinary and healing, social and political. Ultimately, it is an act of love and community. Using her expert knowledge of botany and mycology, Mo follows the seasons to find nutritious food from hundreds of species of plants, fungi and seaweeds, and in the process learns not just how to survive, but how to thrive. Nourishing her body and mind deepens her connection with the earth – a connection that we have become estranged from but which we all, deep down, hunger for.

This hunger is about much more than food. It is about accepting and understanding our place in a natural network that is both staggeringly complex and beautifully simple. The Wilderness Cure is a diary of a wild experiment; a timely and inspiring memoir which explores a deeper relationship between humans and nature, and reminds us of the important lost lessons from our past.

‘Mo Wilde’s story of foraging for food and medicine is an inspiration to us all. She brings home the need so many of us have for the wild redeemer as a part of our diet and our lives.’ – Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of the bestselling Herbal Antibiotics and Earth Grief: The Journey Into and Through Ecological Loss

‘A masterly work of information and erudition, one from which I am still buzzing with the pleasure of its reading. Inspiration and delight sparkle from every page, … This book [is] a revelation of joy to the general reader for whom wild food is another country.’ – John Wright FLS, author of The Hedgerow Handbook
