About the event

The walk will look at common wild plants with edible or medicinal uses, historical uses and poisonous lookalikes aimed at beginners and helping you to get started in the world of foraging.

If you’ve done a few walks before this is still for you – practice what you know, learn new plants in new seasons or environments and get comfortable with your local surroundings.

We have a range of meet up locations and we will then go for walk in the local area from here – these walks can vary and there is no set area. Where possible we will try to loop the walk so that you finish where you started but this will not always be possible.

 Foraging Through the Seasons 

When you forage in the year will greatly affect the kinds of things you are likely to find. Everything has its own season and some plants and trees may produce different edibles at different times of the year. For example, the common hawthorn can provide leaves and flowers in the early spring, and haw fruits in the dead of winter. To gain a true understanding of a local area, we recommend you visit it regularly throughout the year and as such have a variety of walks available across these key seasons.

The below is a rough idea on what you may typically be looking at in each season.

  • Winter Usually a few berries, and if you’re lucky mushrooms. Largely looking at survival foods, small plants in the grass etc and the few edible evergreens.
  • Spring A time of absolute abundance, everything leafy green and full of flavour comes out including the fabled wild garlics. A great time for tree foraging.
  • Summer A good mix of flowers and leafy greens and if you’re lucky a few early fruits too.
  • Autumn Perfect time for roots and late season larger fruits for a typical harvest abundance that makes you feel like you’re really winning at foraging. You may even find the odd mushroom, nuts in a good mast year and some war time essential foods.
