Fergus The Forager & Friends 31


Not believing in the separation between life and play, hobbies and work, as well as the above, he likes to swim, run and cycle, think about and research environmental issues, play the violin, cook, work and play with plants and embrace the apparent random opportunities for work and play that come his way. Increasingly that has led to greater collaboration with others and more excursions into the realms of art, bushcraft, and an exploration of primitive and traditional nature based skills.

The Roadkill Chef

In addition he made a TV programme, The Roadkill Chef, for Jamie Oliver’s production company, exploring some more extreme food alternatives. He regularly appears on radio, podcast and television talking about wild food.

Youtube video series

Fergus also outputs a lot of on the fly content on youtube.

His latest series Wild food in Covid times invites you to join him and special guests for wild walks, with a focus on a particular subject each episode.
