Do you know what's growing in your neighborhood?
We live in the Garden of Eden
Yes, we do! The United Kingdom is one of the most beautiful & bountiful lands in the world... trust me, I know! Many people don't see the beauty that surrounds them, but England is one gigantic garden, and it grows every plant you need to be well, and eat well!
Learning the Basics of Foraging
Learning about all the healthy treats growing all around you is Fun AND Good for You
Let me take your group out for a walk, and along the way, I’ll show you what’s growing all around you. We will focus on basic foraging skills, learning to identify easy to recognize plants and talk about what they are good for, and what’s the best way to pick them. I will show you what NOT to pick as well. I love taking people walking through a local park, or out in the countryside- the choice is yours!
…and foraging is not just for adults! I love working with kids and specifically with home education groups. The kids will learns all sorts of new and wonderful plants and what to do with them, AND will learn about what plants we do NOT touch, and why.
We are based in the West Midlands....
But we are willing to travel to other areas of the UK, and arrangements can be made to set up several groups over a day or two.
Unlike a lot of foraging courses out there, I will show you a lot more than just 5 different plants, lol. I will discuss almost every plant we come across, regardless of the season. I will talk about each plant- it’s edibility rating (lots of plants are edible… but why would you if they taste terrible!!?), and their over all health benefits… I really REALLY focus on the health benefits of various plants and trees…. and the occasional fungus!
I promise we don’t bite! And our prices are very reasonable, and set up on a sliding scale according to the needs of your family or group, and how far away you are.
Why don’t I charge £50-100 per person? Because I think that everyone should learn basic foraging. People have different budgets, and I very strongly believe that no one should be left out of learning just because they don’t have the money, especially home educating families- so I have special rates just for home educating families, for those on a tight budget.
We can plan our outing according to the needs of your group- nice & easy going for children and those with mobility issues…. or we can climb and scramble around hillsides and ravines. The choice is up to you!
Teaching & Foraging are two of my passions. I love to meet new people and to share the knowledge I have gathered over several decades of wandering among the flowers & trees.
