Foraging with the Family with Kate Blincoe
After taking multiple journeys around our room we might want to venture out with the family to see what we can gather for a salad of many wild things. You might be surprised what wild edible plants are available to you in your local area, they've been under your nose all along.
Kate Blincoe, author of The No-Nonsense Guide to Green Parenting, joins us this week to discuss what her family is doing during the quarantine. We chat about everything from talking sticks to growing up to eccentric uncles and more...
'The answer is not for us to separate ourselves even further'

About Kate Blincoe
Kate Blincoe is the author of The No-Nonsense Guide to Green Parenting (2015), mother of two, and a freelance writer often featured in The Guardian. She has always been interested in talking about environmental issues, growing up on a farm, she started an opinion column in her local paper at the age of fifteen to discuss issues such as GM farming and hunting. She went on to study Literature at university and then work in environmental education. It was whilst working at the RSPB that she noticed how children were lacking interaction with the natural world and vowed to find a way to increase their - and their parents - confidence in raising kids a bit...wilder.
About the show
We offer a series of conversations to tap into the wildness within ourselves and to uncover what is possible when we do. It is our hope that through the WorldWild Podcast we can contribute to the revitalisation of wild food culture and conversation around the world.
Through people who know their landscapes intimately, we gather the threads to weave a rich tapestry. Piece by piece the vision of a wilder world comes into view. The wild embrace of nature welcomes us back and offers us a seat at the table. A feast, no less!
