Wild Foods

foraging for seasonal ingredients



Julian recalls foraging with his family as a child. Picking and preserving wild fruits and mushrooms established an important connection to the land and his surrounds and demonstrated seasonal availability.  Julian has continued this curiosity of what edible produce surrounds him, including an extensive variety of Native Ingredients.

Kirsten Bradley and Nick Ritar left the city to start a small permaculture farm called Milkwood ten years ago, with a dream of living simply and within their means. Since then, they've been growing food and sharing skills wherever they've lived or travelled – from building biochar stoves to creating rooftop community gardens to teaching permaculture design. They currently live, grow, forage and keep bees on their two-acre permaculture farm near Daylesford. 

The Book

Milkwood: Real skills for down-to-earth living
Divided into five key sections about tomatoes, mushroom cultivation, natural beekeeping, seaweed and wild food, and designed to be read with a pot of tea by your elbow and a notebook beside you, Milkwood is all you need to start living a more home-grown life. From DIY projects to wild fermented recipes, the in-depth knowledge and hands-on instruction contained in these pages will have your whole family fascinated and inspired to get growing, keeping, cooking and making.
