Mo Wilde is a forager, research herbalist, author and ethnobotanist. She lives in West Lothian in a self-built house on 4 organic acres, where she encourages medicinal and foraging species to thrive in a wild, teaching garden. She has been teaching foraging formally since 2005 and was a founding member of the Association of Foragers. Mo spent a wild childhood in Kenya, where she was introduced to herbal medicine by a local herbalist at the age of six, and went on to live and teach in four different continents. She loves foraging and would happily never visit a supermarket again.
After spending many years traveling and running Scotland’s oldest and most trusted herbal medicine company, Napiers, Mo achieved a Masters degree in Herbal Medicine at the age of 50. She is a Fellow of the Linnean Society, a Member of the British Mycological Society and a Member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). She practices at Napiers Lyme Clinic specialising in integrative medicine in the treatment of Lyme disease, lectures in herbal medicine and teaches foraging courses.
