Winter foraging

Winter foraging is easily overlooked.  Whilst there aren’t as many species around, or indeed those species aren’t generally found in the same quantities, there are still plants around that we can forage.

This video shows 8 plant species that I found within around 30 minutes in mid January.  I easily found enough plants to make a filling meal with lots of minerals and vitamins present.

You might also want to take a look at this post which provides a few hints and tips for foraging.

Whilst we don’t run our 1 Day Foraging courses over the winter, I’d encourage you do try a little winter foraging when you have the opportunity.

You can see loads of photos from these courses, as well as all of our other courses, on our Facebook page.
