Foraging and staying connected with your local landscape.

Woods and hedgerows are great places to find wild food and connect with the landscape. Here's our month-by-month guide to sustainable foraging, what's in season and how to eat it.

We are based in a semi rural location with an abundance of rose hip, blackberries, acorns and damsons.

Foraging can be great fun for the family if carried out responsibly.

Below we have cited information from the woodland Trust. 

Never consume a wild plant or fungus unless you are absolutely certain of its identification.

It could be rare and protected, inedible or even deadly poisonous. Use reference books to identify them. Fungi can be notoriously difficult to identify, so if you're unsure it's best to leave alone.

Only collect from plentiful populations

Only collect flowers, leaves, fruits and seeds where they are in abundance.

For fungi, only take mushrooms that have opened their caps (so are likely to have dropped their spores). Do not collect small ‘button’ mushrooms
