“Dermot runs Wild Food Forage events and workshops which are good fun but they also have a hard edge in that many people are looking to save a bit of money and also get in touch with the sights, sounds, smells and feel of the environment we live in. Food and socialising are two of the most fundamental aspects of our lives
There is a wide variety of food you can forage for in Britain, including nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and more. Foraging is a great way to appreciate seasonal change, connect with nature and find wild local ingredients to use in delicious home cooking recipes.
Woodlands, forests and the countryside are a good place to start your foray into foraging, but you may also find wild foods in surprisingly urban places too, such as a local park or even your garden.
