Foraging in winter
Foraging, or the art of gathering wild food to eat, is thrifty, fascinating and a brilliant excuse for a good walk.
For Emily Thompson, being outdoors is an addiction, and she particularly loves mountaineering at any opportunity she gets.
When she's not romping over the mountains or dreaming up the next adventure, Emily works for a charity inspiring positive changes and providing second chances to young people.
Emily also works as a freelance Mountain Leader, working with young people through their Duke of Edinburgh award – training, supervising and assessing their expeditions around the UK, and providing adults with a variety of adventures in the outdoors and teaching navigation.
She is also an active callout member of her local Mountain Rescue Team.
