Watch survival skills expert Bruce Ferguson of Wild North Discovery sharing some of his foraging skills with Robson Green on Further Tales from Northumberland.

Bruce has been foraging for wild food for more than thirty years.

Join him on one of the seasonal public wild food foraging sessions he runs each year or book him for a date that suits you.

Activities run from half a day to a full week for two or more people - see the range of activities below. Join one of our programmed activities or book your own for a day and time that suits you.

In addition to running our own activites near Frosterley in Weardale and at other venues in the North East we also work in partnership with the Forestry Commission and Northumbrian Water Ltd to deliver activities for them at Hamsterely Forest, Kielder Castle and Kielder Waterside at Kielder Water and Forest Park. See the events/workshops section.
