Five wild food forays a year
access to five wild food forays in a range of locations across the north
east over the course of the year covering foraging a wide range of wild food
from hedgerows to woodlands to the seashore from shell fish and
seaweeds to wild herbs, fruits, roots, nuts and wild mushrooms. See below for forays in 2019.
A Facebook group for members to post on and share foraging experiences,
discoveries, recipes, new wild food ideas and so on.
Your wild food mentor is Bruce Ferguson. Bruce has been foraging for
wild food for over 35 years and has been teaching foraging skills
since 1985. Thousands of people have attended his courses and foraging
sessions over the decades and he has often appeared on television and
radio sharing his knowledge and identification skills, including Look
North, More Tales from Northumberland with Robson Green and Made
Tyne and Wear.
Just the five wild food forays would cost up to £300 per person if booked privately.
The value of ongoing wild food mentoring is much more and could save you an upset
