A Calendar Of Foraged Food In The UK

Foraged Food Calendar

Before I launch into the calendar of things to forage in the UK, it’s worth mentioning a few things.

Forage only things that you are certain that you can identify. Don’t take any chances.

Get a good quality foraging identification guide and take it on your travels.

Follow a responsible foraging code.

Leave more than enough of everything to grow back.

Be absolutely certain that you are not taking food from contaminated areas.

Don’t take more than you need.
