Mo Wilde

Mo has had a life-long love affair with plants. Mo's 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. Mo 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. Mo also has a Masters degree in Herbal Medicine and runs Napiers Claid Clinic specialising in Lyme and tick-borne diseases. Her first book — The Wilderness Cure: Ancient Wisdom in a Modern World — was published by Simon & Schuster in 2022; it was a Winner of the John Avery Award at the André Simon Awards that same year.

Mo 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 feral cat.
