The Foraging Guide is published by the Field Studies Council and features the top twenty five edible plants

Written by an experienced forest schools’ leader, FSC Foraging is a great guide to take on a walk with children

Featuring edible flowers, leaves, nuts, fruits, seeds and roots, it covers twenty five of the commonest and tastiest plants to find

And once you’ve gathered your harvest, there are also recipes to try, from wild garlic pesto and crab apple leathers to stinging nettle soup and elderflower cordial

Beautiful colour illustrations and identification table will give you confidence in identifying which species to eat. Also included are some common lookalikes to avoid

Perfect to take on a walk as laminated and small enough to fit in a ruck sack
















What better way to enjoy the outdoors than to go and find your own food for free? Foraging for wild food makes a walk into the most pleasurable and satisfying experience. This fun activity is also a fabulous way of getting children engaged with nature, creating childhood memories filled with picking and eating blackberries.

Foraging for edible plants is possible at any time of the year, so we’ve included a guide to what to look for each month. You can forage for food as part of a country walk or an exploration, with very little equipment. Just take something to collect your harvest, or pick and eat as you go. All these plants are common and easy to find in gardens, parks, hedgerows, waste land, meadows and woods. In fact some, like dandelion, hairy bitter-cress, garlic mustard and chickweed, are common as garden weeds.
