Our mission at Wild St Ives is to inspire the connection between people, plants & the great outdoors.

"Learning to forage for wild foods was a life changing experience for me.

It's like a never ending treasure hunt for adults. It taught me to slow down, get to really know the wild plants in my local area & discover a new world of flavours.
I set up Wild St Ives in 2016 in my hometown to share my passion & teach others how to forage for wild food in a safe & sustainable way."

Our courses instil the skills & confidence people need to forage for wild edible plants, regardless of their background or experience.


Josh has worked with a diverse range of people, from curious home cooks to grandmothers & grandchildren, brewers, distillers, & renowned chefs.

If you have an interest in food & drinks, the plant kingdom, or simply being outside, there's something for you at Wild St Ives.

Hungry for Change is a short documentary film by Cornwall Climate Care & presented by Josh.

It takes us on a fascinating and inspiring journey to meet people in Cornwall working on ways for us to 'do food better' as the climate changes – from the gleaners picking ‘waste’ crops in our fields to projects growing food in unusual places, & a microbiologist keen to get us all eating low-carbon insects.
