``Excellent Day``
We had a fabulous day out foraging with Megan in Barns Green. Along with perfect weather, we had all our questions answered and felt we left with a ton of knowledge.

I have already and would recommend for anyone to do this, a great day outdoors learning about nature.

Plus Megan cooked a fantastic meal in the woods at the end! 5*

I’d like to thank Hazel and Totally Wild for organising such an interesting and inspiring event, which I enjoyed very much, as did my friend. This was a Christmas present from my son, and one which I will not forget.

The meal was amazing.

I love cooking and recipe development, but had fallen out of love with food pre-lockdown. Your Wild Veg Box is helping me be so creative and I've really found my love of food, and myself, again. Thanks guys 🙂

Loving the Ingredients coming in to the restaurant from you guys, nicely packed and perfect to go. The produce calendar you send out has really helped us plan our menu much more easily too. Keep up the good work!
