Peter Fishl has been foraging and learning about wild foods for the last 25 years. He studied with Martha Weber of Constance Bay and some local wild foragers. He has been involved in many wild foraging events. Everything from 'Critter Dipping' for the kids, to Wild Leek walks.  These walks often included harvesting, preparation and cooking. Most recently Peter has organized a walk for the 200th Anniversary of Tay Valley entitled  ' Heritage Herbs. In related hobbies he photographs ' old growth ' trees in Lanark and has set up a guided nature trail .
