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.
