Wild Apothecary Logo

Rox Madeira, formerly Trossachs Wild Apothecary, offers foraging walks as well courses on wild kitchen medicine and medicine making. All ages are catered for, from a Little Alchemists Club to wild cocktail making classes.



Rox began offering foraging walks around Aberfoyle in 2019, shortly after taking part in the LEADER funded Wild Wonders food training course. 

She has gone on to run workshops across Scotland and online and is a co-organiser of the Scottish Wild Food Festival.

Rox said: “In the hustle and bustle of modern life we have lost contact with nature, food and natural healing.  I believe that food is medicine and that getting out in nature is vital to our physical and mental wellbeing.

 “I’ve studied Nutritional Therapy and am studying Culinary Medicine and Medical Herbalism. Kitchen Medicine is one of the oldest forms of medicine. It has been practiced across cultures throughout the ages and is very popular to this day. It is still used by around 80% of the world.”

Rox offers walks and workshops on wild food, kitchen medicine, herbal medicine, Restore Your Core and yoga. 

She said: “I particularly love the idea of kitchen medicine and using the plants growing wild around us as both our food and medicine, and also as a means of preventative health.”

Rox also runs a nutritional therapy clinic and a Little Alchemists Club for families to learn about wild foods and herbs; and has plans to open a herbal medicine clinic in future. 




Rox is involved in the running of the Scottish Wild Food Festival and is a member of Herbalists Without Borders and the Association of Foragers. She welcomes opportunities to collaborate with other businesses in Forth Valley with an interest in wild food and herbalism.
