‘Foraging is one of the last wild acts of defiance against the concrete world. Humans versus humanoids. It’s a crack in the dam, a chink of light, wild food nourishes your very soul.’
Mo Wilde made a quiet but radical pledge: to live only off foraged food for an entire year. In a world disconnected from its roots, eating wild food is both culinary and healing, social and political.
This is the story of that year.
Set against the backdrop of climate change, Brexit and the impending recession, THE WILDERNESS CURE is a diary of a wild experiment; a timely, important and inspiring memoir which is a love letter to the natural world.
