Robin Harford has been running his hugely popular Edible London Foraging Courses since 2010. Before ‘wild food’ became mainstream.
His London based wild food walks and foraging courses are considered to be truly inspirational, and recently where voted #1 in the country by BBC Countryfile.
Discover A World Of Wild Edible Possibilities Around London
On Robin’s London foraging courses he usually covers at minimum 20 wild food plants, and in Springtime this can be as many as 40 or 50 wild edibles.
He’ll show you how to identify wild edible plants using his unique ‘sensory method of plant identification’.
You’ll learn how to cook, prepare and preserve the plants you find, as well as be immersed in their mystery, history and folklore. Sustainable foraging, safety guidelines, and the law are also covered.
Robin sees foraging as an art, an ancient way to feed and sustain ourselves in a slow, graceful way.
The very act of foraging is deeply healing and transformative and goes beyond simply putting food on the table. It opens you up to the mystery and wonderment of Life.
There is nothing more fulfilling than wandering around picking a bit here, a bit there, crushing, smelling, nibbling, only to return to your kitchen to prepare scrumptious food for loved ones.
During your time together Robin will take you on a plant journey like no other you will have come across.
He won’t be regurgitating facts and figures he’s simply read in books, he lives and breathes wild plants, and will teach you what the books simply cannot.
Plants are his life, and he knows that once you have been touched by them, your life will be forever changed, and you’ll realise (even more than you do now) just what a wonderful gift you have been given.
Welcome to the wild world of foraging and the ancient art of the forager.
