About me: I am Courtney Tyler. I live in County Wicklow, Ireland- happiest surrounded by trees and observing the changing seasons. I am a keen forager and spend much time wandering the hedgerows, coasts and forests for wild local food to preserve as food or medicine or to add to my fermented food and drinks. I am a proud member of the Association of Foragers.

I am not a mushroom expert nor a mycologist; however I am desperately passionate about the subject and I have safely foraged for and consumed about 80 wild mushrooms as food or medicine. I can identify many toxic or deadly plants fungi and show you what to avoid. I have processed wild or cultivated mushrooms into herbal tinctures, teas and salves, pickles and preserves.

I am passionate about the learning process and am able to clearly communicate what i know and the passion I feel for the hard won knowledge and experience that I have acquired. I tend to dive head-long into the things that interest me and I am largely self-taught, however I also have had many teachers and constantly find many who inspire me greatly. It is not unusual for me to fall asleep each night with a mushroom book in hand.

I share my knowledge and experience through foraging walks and tours, workshops, crafting and recipes.

“Her passion, knowledge and her ability to clearly explain and share the excitement and to re-kindle the reconnection to the wild around and within us is what you can expect if you join her on one of her events.”
