We are delighted to be running our urban forage expeditions from Sunday 30th May . Join us in Hebden Bridge, Chorlton, Didsbury or Macclesfield for an inspiring and fun session. Further information is available on our events calander. Meanwhile we continue to provide meals for our most vulnerable communities through our Covid 19 Emergency Food Response. To date we have cooked and delivered over 75, 000 meals.

What is foraging?

We have a rolling programme of wild food forages run by James Wood an Ofqual (gov) accredited forager. James runs engaging foraging courses, supplies the UK’s top restaurants with freshly foraged wild ingredients along with the UK’s best farm shops and delicatessens with foraged preserves. James teaches groups how to successfully identify edible plants . You can’t be much more seasonal eating wild food and our foraging walks reflect this, with special mushroom hunts in the autumn and elder flower picking in the summer.

Wild food forages take place in Didsbury, Chorlton, Sale, Hebden Bridge, Macclesfield and Heaton Park.
