A Wild Food Foraging Guide to the Edible and Medicinal Wild Plants of Britain and Ireland

Hi, I’m Robin Harford. Since 2008, I have blogged and taught people about wild plants. I’ve published over fifty ebooks and a handful of paperbacks. You can contact me here.

Find a Plant is the primary area of this site. You’ll learn the past and present uses of wild plants as food and medicine. It’s very comprehensive, and I regularly add new plants.

What’s in Season tells you which plants to harvest each month as you forage through the year.

Go here if you want a quick way to access my recent Articles.

I’ve also created hundreds of Foraging Recipes, and there is also a small Video section.

If you like audio, you’ll find my Podcast here. Each show explores the relationship that humans have had with plants since we came into being.

I also teach Foraging Courses. Recently BBC Countryfile voted them #1 in the country.
