Foraging tour at cae mabon, Snowdonia wales


Based in Eryri (Snowdonia), Wales, we offer foraging classes, deep ecology/bioregionalism education and permaculture gardening in service of a more beautiful world.

We believe that the development of a life of voluntary simplicity is a radical act. In building a healthy relationship to plants, food and the ecological-human community we root into regenerative life-ways accessible to all.

"Live simply so that others may simply live"

-Mother Teresa
