Robin Harford’s Foraging Guide to the Wild Edible Plants of Britain

Wild food foraging guide to the wild edible plants of Britain
Hi, Robin here.

I am the founder, editor, and publisher of Eatweeds, a foraging guide to the wild edible plants of Britain.

I started this site back in 2008 as a personal diary of what I was foraging on my daily walks in the countryside.

Over the years I have published hundreds of wild food recipes. The Times listed this site in their Top 50 websites for food and drink.

If you have a passion for plant-based foraging and wild food. Whether you are just starting out or have a few years under your belt. Then you’re in the right place.

Interested in edible seaweeds? Recently I published the Edible Seaweed Notebook.

Whether you’re a forager, herbalist or just love plants, the Foragers’ Notebook series will take you on a deep journey into the plant world.

You might also want to check out the GATHER! community.

There’s a comprehensive library of plant profiles detailing the traditional and modern uses of wild plants both as food and medicine here.

If audio is “your thing”, then you’ll find the Eatweeds podcast here. Each show explores the relationship that humans have had with plants since we came into being.

As I say on my foraging courses (which were recently voted #1 by BBC Countryfile).

Plants are the foundation of human culture. Without them, humans simply would not exist.

It is my passion to help you become a safe, confident and knowledgeable forager.

To help you reconnect to the natural world through the simple act of gathering plants.

Foraging is an ancient art. A slow and graceful way to feed and sustain ourselves.

There is nothing more fulfilling than wandering around picking a bit here, a bit there.

Only to return home to prepare scrumptious food for loved ones and friends.
