Wild Food Foraging Walks

Foraging is  a wonderful way of connecting with and exploring nature, whilst enjoying fresh and seasonal wild foods direct from your local area. Join me, The Cramlington Forager, on a wild food foraging walk, as we discover and learn about the abundance of food which is available throughout the year. Enjoy meeting with like minded people as we immerse ourselves in nature and gather together to explore the wilder side of Cramlington and Northumberland.

Foraging courses run from March through to October, in locations across the North-East. Each walk is individually tailored to the season and location so what is on offer differs for each course. Tickets are released seasonally so please consider signing up to the mailing list for priority notice of when they become available.

Wild Food Foraging

You might be surprised to learn that you don't always have to head to the woods to find edible wild food.  Hedgerows, parks and pathways are often hiding an incredibly diverse selection of wild foods throughout the year and this course will show you how, when and where to find them and identify them.

 We'll cover around 10-15 plants, how to use them, their nutritional and herbal benefits. As in all of my walks, I'll go over how to forage safely and sustainably and any relevant legalities.

Foraging With Kids

New for 2023, the Foraging With Kids sessions are designed with younger children in mind. These sessions are slightly shorter than the Wild Food Foraging Walks and aims to be a more hands on sensory experience. We'll spend time exploring the area and getting to know between a handful of carefully chosen wild edibles that are easy to recognise and likely already familiar.

 

Foraging With Kids is designed for early years children, but all ages are welcome.

An Introduction to Foraging

An Introduction to Foraging is aimed at those who have perhaps never foraged before or would like to build up their confidence in foraging. These sessions are 2 hours longand will take place in a few select locations in Cramlington.

 

We'll cover an abundance of wild edibles, as well as discuss in depth the laws surrounding foraging and the safety aspects to consider. We'll explore how best to gather, use and preserve your harvests and seasonal recipe cards will also be included.
