Since 2018 I have been writing short songs and ditties about the plants that I forage and have got to know over the years. I write about their qualities and my relationship to them, about their historical, medicinal or nutritional benefits. Sometimes I sing as if from the perspective of the plant or seaweed.
Songs introduce a different way of relating to wild food and can be a more direct way of learning - appealing to rhythm and joy compared to labouring over facts. Sometimes I will share a song or two on one of my public foraging courses or private forays. People are invited to just listen or join in; it's a little fun with some information spliced.
Check out my SoundCloud to hear some of the songs.
