Monica Wilde

Monica has had a life-long love affair with plants. Her childhood in Kenya created self-reliance, a deep respect for Gaia, and taught her the value of the ‘old ways’ of living - still relevant today for those leading a sustainable life. She teaches foraging and is a founder member of the Association of Foragers, a member of the British Mycological Society and a Fellow of the Linnean Society. She also has a Masters degree in Herbal Medicine and runs a clinic specialising in Lyme and tick-borne diseases. Monica lives in a self-built wooden home on 4 acres in central Scotland that she shares with 259 species of plants, 83 of insects, 62 bird species, 51 fungi, 13 wild mammals, 3 ferrets, 2 humans and 1 elderly cat.
