You’ll learn about our most common and useful wild plant species, as Chris takes you on experimental, wild food culinary adventures. These include sessions on gastronomical botany and the simple to learn, off-grid preservation techniques of lacto-fermentation.

Each session includes sharing delicious meals and snacks prepared using foraged ingredients, so there is no need to bring a packed lunch!

Chris publishes foraging resources such as playing cards, colour coded harvesting charts, waterproof wild plant identification cards. He also offers year round foraging courses at various locations, throughout the UK.

We’ll post times and dates of our wild food foraging walks and plant identification workshops here; watch this space!
