Welcome To West Sussex Wild Food!

Well 2020 has certainly thrown a curve ball at everyone, and now 2020 is drawing to a close, Autumn is here and so are the edibles.

BIG shout out to the NHS and other key workers, still doing their job.

This year guided walks have mainly in woodland, with a couple along the shoreline and rivers. Groups have been reduced right down to a max of 6 and an increase of one to one sessions.

I have added a section on “easy game meat” to the site, with some links which you should read and fully understand, before going out to get any yourself. It’s all part of wild food, and I know it’s not to everyone’s taste, but there are people out there who would like to know and I feel it’s my “job” to inform you. This is under the edibles tab.

Foraging… This isn’t something new to us as a species, We have lived this way for many, many, many years, the men would hunt, the women would gather. I’ve found more and more people today are joining the foraging community and going on identification and/or bush craft courses, to gain more knowledge.

So, much knowledge and so many skills have been lost or nearly lost over the years, that now small groups of people are slowly, but surely bringing as much knowledge as possible back to life and sharing it with others.

BEWARE! That if you go out foraging and collect ”food” which you can not be 100% sure of, Then you eat it at your own risk!

Courses and any knowledge gained for the purposes of foraging, Is always best gained from “professionals” (most will claim they aren’t) and being hands on. Books and Photos are sometimes not enough to ensure a ”safe forage”, it is very much hands on and practice, practice, practice is they only way your gain this knowledge. So, please heed this warning!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the guided walks.

Many Thanks, Wildfood 🙂
