Welcome To West Sussex Wild Food!

2020 is finally (hopefully) coming to an end. I think it’s safe to say, that everyone has had their fill of this year.

2021 will be hopefully be happier, healthier and covid free.

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

This year guided walks have mainly been 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.

The groups of 6, I have found, work better than larger groups. As people get more one to one time and they are able to hear better. I will still do larger groups, when we are allowed, so you can still book stag/hen do’s, school classes and forest schools in for a forage.

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 🙂
