About Wild Harvest and Your Tutor Di Hammill
Wild Harvest was established by Di Hammill, a qualified teacher and doctoral research student, in the Wilderness of the North Yorks moors where she was raising her three young children alone and off-grid. Initially selling beeswax candles, hedgerow teas and cordials plus running occasional foraging walks and rural crafts classes. Di is a qualified Adult Ed. Tutor, Youth and Community Worker, Archery Instructor, Permaculture Designer and is a member of the Association of Foragers. The business, now in York, has grown significantly, attracting customers from all over the country and even last year as far as China and Dubai. Di is often asked to comment by the media and her most recent contributions are articles she has written for Landlove magazine on urban foraging and International Glamping Business Magazine on being an activities provider. She was also asked to respond to Monty Dons argument that self-sufficiency was a non-starter! Wild Harvest provide talks and workshops on all things natural lifestyle all around the country at NEC, Alexandra Palace for W.I National Show and Eco Living Show, London Business Design Centre and Harrogate International Centre for Country Living Magazine and Franchisees are encouraged to come along to shows to meet customers and get practise on National stages if they wish.
