Wild Harvest

York Food Festival Contributor Di Hammill has been running wild food walks for nearly two decades starting from up in the Wild North Yorkshire Moors where she raised her three children alone and off-grid. She has ran walks for the forestry commission and various museums and for the last six years, the York Introduction to Wild Food Walk where she has enjoyed teaching hundreds of locals and visitors alike about the benefits of wild food foraging as part of the offerings from Wild Harvest School of Self-Reliance. Testimonials: Thank you so much for today and for sharing your knowledge. I loved the walk. Just brilliant and learnt so much in such a short time. I'm so glad I took notes as my memory is shocking. The garlic mustard will be working its way into lots of recipes too. I can't wait for the crafts weekend in June!Best wishes, Suzanne. I found the wild food walk inspirational in changing my outlook on weeds and the informative suggestions in preparing these foods for maximum benefit. I went on this wild food walk wanting to expand my knowledge of survival skills for preparing oneself in a worst-case scenario and found it to be just what I was looking for. I then went on a basket weaving course a few months later which gave me sense of satisfaction and more confidence in making things from nature- Diana is a very calm and patient teacher and has a real passion for teaching these things as she has lived and breathed self sufficiency for many many years. I'm in awe of her knowledge and ability as well as the fact that she walks the walk, she doesn't just talk the talk, having lived on the North York Moors in a self - sufficient lifestyle with 3 children for years. I'd like to try the full weekend course next! Thanks for everything. Louise.
