Vegetable Picking


Thanks for finding my website where you will discover all plant based foods, home grown, foraged and home made, slow cooking from scratch, tips on food styling and food photography.

I lived in Australia for 8 years, discovered much about the natural world and sustainable living. I now live in the South English countryside and amongst other things, am running monthly Wild Ivy Retreats from my re-wilding garden and surrounding countryside. The days include mindfulness, nurturing in nature with a
vegan home grown feast have a look at my Instagram.

I love nothing more than showing people how utterly loving nature is. We learn together about
 edible herbs, make crafts, collect funghi and weeds and together are rewilding what's already there, nurturing the fruit trees and adding to the nature. My main goals are to create Forest Garden that functions in complete harmony with
all the creatures and each living plant.

I also like to paint what I pick for relaxation, so you will find some of my foodie 'kitchen' artworks for sale here too.
My background is as a food editor, photographer, film maker and food stylist beginning at Good Housekeeping Magazine and onto Love Food Hate Waste and many other publications, print, online and TV shows in the UK and Australia along with writing and styling my own cook books. I have been a TV food assistant to Gordon Ramsay and Raymond Blanc and many other TV Chefs. Most recently I've designed websites and styled and managed Nigel Barden's social Media. 
Let's keep in touch... 

Look forward to connecting
