  • The modest bramble is both loved and hated for its thorns and powers of entanglement, as well as its delicious fruit. As the case with our other native trees, it is deeply embedded in our tradition and folklore. The pastime of blackberry picking (blackberrying) goes back thousands of years and is still popular today. Bramble has also widely been used in traditional medicine. Its leaves are used in the preparation of herbal teas and the root bark and leaves are used medicinally due to its healing and detoxifying properties. .

  • Wood sorrel (oxalis acetosella) is a plant principally of ancient deciduous woodland. On the otherwise dark woodland floor, wood sorrel can appear an almost luminous bluish-green colour. The leaves also have a sharp fruity taste and were used as a vegetable as early as the 14th century and by the 15th century, it was under cultivation. Come the 17th century John Evelyn was recommending it in the list of plants suitable for a kitchen garden! (Photo by Richard Becker)

  • DAMES ROCKET (Hesperis matronalis) - Edible plant in the broccoli and mustards family Brassicaceae.

Dames rocket has been used medicinally to promote sweating and urination to detox from carcinogens and drugs, it has also been used to loosen mucus for those suffering with things like bronchitis and colds. The plant is rumoured to be a gland stimulant and aphrodisiac and it can also apparently be used for serpent stings and freckle control.

When harvesting dames rocket its recommended to cut off the top tender portion of the stems with the flower buds attached, this is apparently delicious when fried in butter or dairy free butter in my case. When raw there can be a bitterness but that goes away with cooking. Other parts that have been consumed are the young leaves which have a very slight bitter taste, apparently they are nice in salads.

Dames rocket is native to Europe and Asia, including the UK, it was also introduced to the United States in the 1600s. it can be found in moist and mesic woodlands, on woodland edges, open areas and along roadsides.

  • Douglas Fir is another tree that we’ve been teaching about in some of our Spring courses. Douglas Fir tips (new Spring growth) are in season right now. Their tender texture and strong scent makes it a favourite of chefs and foragers. Not to be confused with poisonous Yew. More info on our plant guide.

  • 🌿..Seasonal delicacies..🌿
.
It brings me such a deep connection to eat wild food, tying me intimately to the seasons and to the energies of that point of the year. When eating seasonally, the food that is locally available characterizes that period something wonderful, in taste and in beauty, a treat to look forward to each year.
.
Here I feel very happy to have caught some young hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium) shoots whilst I was in England. They are super abundant and one of the most delicious wild vegetables I have tried. The taste is very unique, rather difficult to describe but with hints of parsley and a slight aniseed flavour.
.
The young stems are picked before the leaf unfurls, the younger the shoot the better the flavour. They can be steamed or pan-fried in a fat of your choice. Here I kept it simple with coconut oil, salt & peps and a spritz of lemon juice. DELISH.
.
However; POTENTIAL DANGERS. Hogweed is part of the Apiaceae family, a family of many delicious herbs and vegetables; but also one of many incredibly toxic ones. Hogweed can most easily be confused with giant hogweed, which is very phototoxic. Getting any part of this plant on your skin can cause serious burns when exposed to sunlight. They are distinguishable once you get to know them both though so dont let the fear prevent your curiosity! Just research well and be 100% sure before harvesting.
.
We thank you Mother for your gifts!

  • Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to sound like one of those creepy rape apologist at all, but... these Spruce trees waving their tender fragrant tips were really asking for it! I mean asking to be foraged, if anything else crossed your mind you’re a weirdo and you have to check yourself! Important things to remind: it’s ok to eat plants without their explicit consent; it’s absolutely NOT ok to do the same with humans; if you speak tree language and have their consent, well... good for you I guess, good for you; with or without consent have some respect, pick here and there from different trees, and with young trees never pick the tips at the top as that’s their upwards growth for the year; hugging trees doesn’t need to be made more awkward, but in any case a young Spruce tree might not be the best hugging choice. As for the tips, I’m not really sure what to do with them yet. Sugar is on my mind (sugar and spice...) but your suggestions are welcome.

  • HAZELNUT (Corylus avellana) - Edible member of the birch family Betulaceae.

Hazel is a very common and widely known plant because the nuts that grow later in the year are edible and they are included in many common products such as nutella and vegan milks. This species of nut is native to the UK and it has been here for a lot longer than most other plants as hazel was one of the first species to return after the ice age. 
Hazelnut commonly grows in the understorey of lowland oak, ash or birch woodland and it can also be found abundantly at field edges.

Medicinally hazelnuts have been used to fight cancer due to its high levels of antioxidants, it contains a good amount of vitamin E which has been shown to prevent the growth of mutations and tumors. Hazelnuts are also good for hair and skin health, they combat obesity and they are also used to combat diabetes.

If you consume hazelnut on a common basis then it can help to prevent alzheimers disease, dementia, parkinsons disease and many other diseases that affect memory and the brain.

Hazelnut can be consumed in a number of ways, they can be grated into salads or puddings, roasted, made into hazelnut milk by blending with water and straining, or use your imagination and come up with your own recipes!

Hazelnut trees can form mycorrhizal relationships with certain species of mushroom which basically means many types of mushroom grows from hazel roots, under hazel you can find species such as morels, hazel milkcaps and even truffles, mushrooms also grow directly on the wood such as oyster mushrooms and turkey tails.

  • SAINT GEORGE'S MUSHROOM (Calocybe gambosa) - Edible mushroom in the Lyophyllaceae family.

Calocybe gambosa is an edible fungus that grows in spring, preferring the warmer days that are around 15-20 degrees Celsius. It is known as the St George mushroom because it appears in the UK a few weeks either side of St George's day (23rd April). You can identify Calocybe gambosa by its mealy smell which is like wet flour or dough, some people also get hints of cucumber or watermelon too when smelling this fungus but not always. The gills should be sinuate, very close together, white and crowded, the cap should be 5-15cm in diameter and it starts white with a brown tinge and slowly tans with age. The stem is usually slightly thicker at the base and its 2-4cm wide and 3-7cm tall and there is no stem ring or bulbous base. Spore print is white.

The St Georges mushroom grows in a wide variety of locations, it can be found in animal fields or normal fields, mixed woodland, roadside verges, near hedges and with certain varieties of tree. The trees associated with this mushroom are Hazel, Oak, Beech, Silver Birch, Hawthorn, and occasionally some coniferous trees. These mushrooms I found were growing in association with Silver Birch and Hawthorn.

  • WILD CHERRY (Prunus avium) - Edible plant of the rose family Rosaceae.

Wild cherry, also known as Gean or Sweet Cherry grows naturally in the UK, Europe, Anatolia, Maghreb, Western Asia, Morocco, Tunisia, Norway, Caucasas and Northern Iran.

Prunus avium is a wild relative of many fruits you probably eat such as strawberries, blackberries, plums, and the cultivated cherry. The cultivated cherry is the exact same species as this tree but when humans selectively grow it for hundreds of years we can change the sweetness and bitterness and stuff like that so this wild type of cherry is slightly different to what you may be used to.

There are a lot of members in the Rosaceae family which contain cyanide or glycosides that turn into cyanide when ingested, which makes them inedible and quite toxic, this isn't the case with all fruits in the Rosaceae family though including this berry, however you can only pick the ripe fruits, when the fruits are unripe they will contain some amount of cyanide but as soon as the berries are ripe and dark red / purple  then they are ready to eat and they will not cause any harm at all.

Medicinally wild cherry can be used as an astringent, diuretic, tonic and it treats cystitis, oedema, bronchial complaints, bowel complaints and anemia.

Wild cherry is in fruit now, it will start to slowly grow more berries which will ripen from July to August, you might be able to find a few flowers left on the trees now but they are mostly gone because they usually flower from April to early May.

If you wish to find a wild cherry tree then I would look in natural woodland, planted woodlands, hedgerows, dry forests, near other deciduous trees, forest margins, shrub woods, alongside gullies and rivers and humid areas with deep soil.

You can also find these trees in very random places because birds distribute the seeds all over the place.

  • Last night we held our first ever supper club in our workshop. It was a magical evening with some great friends, thank you so much to everyone who came. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Food might seem a little bit of a departure from furniture, but for us furniture has always been the consequence of an attempt to improve biodiversity in our woodlands and mitigate carbon emissions. And if we really care about biodiversity and carbon, we need to be looking to our fields as well as our woodlands and fields lead us to food.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We have been writing a manifesto for land use over the last few months and it was great to have a chance to launch its first draft over a dinner inspired by the ideas within it, with a nature-first menu designed in collaboration with and delivered deliciously by @oliviabennettstylist and her stellar team. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Food from the land looks at how we can live within our means, drawing resources from our landscape in ways that work with nature, rather than against it. It suggests how we can reshape our land for biodiversity, become zero carbon through afforestation, and still have space for us to grow food and materials with a growing population. I can’t wait to share the document with you once we’ve completed the final draft. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Thanks so much again to everyone who came, particularly @farminggeorge and David @thehornedbeefcompany for your insights into the world of farming and @meadfurniture @camilla_lee_ @tabvdl, (some of our workshop team) for being such wonderful servers. ⁣⁣
⁣
Want to come to our next one? We’ll be running our supper clubs quarterly, look out for our first release of tickets when we release details and dates in the coming weeks. ⁣
⁣⁣
Thanks too to our suppliers @thehornedbeefcompany @hodmedods @pumpstreetchocolate @eatgrubofficial @thecalfatfootdairy @wildharvestuk @winemakersdeptford @falconenamel. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And @jameogreig for the photos. ⁣⁣

  • Last night we held our first ever supper club in our workshop. It was a magical evening with some great friends, thank you so much to everyone who came. ⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣
    Food might seem a little bit of a departure from furniture, but for us furniture has always been the consequence of an attempt to improve biodiversity in our woodlands and mitigate carbon emissions. And if we really care about biodiversity and carbon, we need to be looking to our fields as well as our woodlands and fields lead us to food.⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣
    We have been writing a manifesto for land use over the last few months and it was great to have a chance to launch its first draft over a dinner inspired by the ideas within it, with a nature-first menu designed in collaboration with and delivered deliciously by @oliviabennettstylist and her stellar team. ⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣
    Food from the land looks at how we can live within our means, drawing resources from our landscape in ways that work with nature, rather than against it. It suggests how we can reshape our land for biodiversity, become zero carbon through afforestation, and still have space for us to grow food and materials with a growing population. I can’t wait to share the document with you once we’ve completed the final draft. ⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣
    Thanks so much again to everyone who came, particularly @farminggeorge and David @thehornedbeefcompany for your insights into the world of farming and @meadfurniture @camilla_lee_ @tabvdl, (some of our workshop team) for being such wonderful servers. ⁣⁣

    Want to come to our next one? We’ll be running our supper clubs quarterly, look out for our first release of tickets when we release details and dates in the coming weeks. ⁣
    ⁣⁣
    Thanks too to our suppliers @thehornedbeefcompany @hodmedods @pumpstreetchocolate @eatgrubofficial @thecalfatfootdairy @wildharvestuk @winemakersdeptford @falconenamel. ⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣
    And @jameogreig for the photos. ⁣⁣

  • EUROPEAN ASH - Deciduous tree in the olive family Oleaceae.

European Ash is native to Europe, UK, Caucasus and Alborz mountains.

Ash tree has been consumed in a number of ways for medicinal purposes and for food. The leaves are said to be edible and some sources say that Ash leaf tea is one of the best way to consume the leaves. The Ash tree can be tapped like a maple or birch so you can collect its sap. There are small seeds known as Ash keys which grow later in the year and they are said to be edible. There is also bark inside the tree which is considered edible too. 
Medicinally it has been used to treat rheumatism, arthritis, gout, athrosis, dysmenorrhea, this tree is also a laxative, diuretic and a purgative.

There are ways that you can make chewing gum from Ash trees which is meant to have a sweet taste, the gum contains mannose which is very beneficial to the liver and makes it work better and heal. It can also prevent urinary tract infections.

You can identify Ash by its leaf structure as you can see in the second picture, when young this tree could be confused for a rose or something in the rose family but once it gets big it would be quite hard to misidentify it.

  • Holy Nettle! For years I have been peeking my head out from piles of osteopathic exam notes too late into spring to harvest nettle shoots for tincture. These buds were so full of vitality though that I can’t imagine them making anything but great medicine.

  • May - I keep mixing up the mint family, so here’s a helpful side-by-side between purple dead head nettle (left) and ground ivy (right) in case your afflicted with the same! 
Purple and white dead head nettle look similar apart from - you guessed it - the colour of their flowers, and are delicious when lightly cooked, flowers leaves and all. Ground ivy smells very strongly minty and is delicious as a tea, though I’ve just learnt you shouldn’t drink it while pregnant! Thanks to @rachellambertwildfoodforaging for the tip and to @christa_bowling for the photo 🤗💙

  • LAMBS LETTUCE / CORNSALAD (Valerianella locusta) - Edible member of the Caprifoliaceae family.

Valerianella locusta is native to the temperate regions of Europe including the UK. 
Lambs lettuce is very commonly sold in shops, its added to salad bags and sold on its own too, but this plant grows here in the UK naturally and the wild version tastes exactly the same, if not better because its truly organic.

Lambs lettuce likes to grow in populated places such as by pavements and garden edges, it could even pop up randomly in your garden. I never really see lambs lettuce when I'm in woodlands and natural places, for some reason it always seems to just grow near buildings.

56g of raw lambs lettuce contains 12 calories, 1.12g of protein, 0.22g of fat, 2.02g carbs, 21.4mg of vitamin c, 1.22mg of iron, 0.153mg of B6, 0.075mg of copper and 257mg of potassium and loads more, too much to type, id be here for years because its that nutritious !! Corn salad is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids which are healthy fats that are very beneficial for the brain, corn salad also contains tryptophan which is a beneficial amino acid that converts into serotonin which is pretty much happiness so this is a good food for making you happier.

  • BIRCH POLYPORE (Fomitopsis betulina) -Medicinal mushroom in the Fomitopsidaceae family.

Birch polypore is a common fungus that can be found growing from birch trees, usually in woodland.

It's long been known that Fomitopsis betulina has quite a lot of medicinal properties. The outer skin can be peeled off and used as a plaster for wounds, this plaster will stick and it will also have antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic effects.

Birch polypore is used as a tonic for the immune system, an antiseptic wound cleaner, it can also be used to treat parasitic worms.

It seems that the birch polypore can be useful in the treatment of cancer for a number of reasons, it provides support to the immune system and inhibits angiogenesis, the formation of new blood cells which occurs in tumor growth.

Birch polypore contains betulinic acid which comes from within the birch tree it grows on, and multiple studies have shown that betulinic acid can induce apoptosis (cell death) to cancer cells. Betulinic acid also has a positive effect on HIV sufferers, it uses antiviral action against HIV by blocking it from reproducing.

Fomitopsis betulina is also effective at treating some viruses including cowpox, flu, yellow fever and other potentially deadly viruses.

Birch polypore isn't a mushroom you can just fry up and eat on some toast, it has too much of a weird texture for this so to get the medicinal benefits from this you can dry it out and make mushroom powder, you could make mushroom tea or soup broth too or you could make a tincture by soaking the fungus in highly concentrated alcohol such as vodka to extract all the medicinal qualities, be creative and find your own ways to consume this free medicine too!

  • ⚠️⚠️⚠️ Poison Hemlock (deadly poisonous, right) growing next to the related and similar looking Cow Parsley (edible, left). This is why we put so much emphasis on the Carrot family during our courses and alert you for its dangers. Thankfully, as seen on our courses, the family also contains some very tasty and safe plants for the beginner forager.

  • Sprouted Acorn Beer and the old potstill. ⁣
Imagine for a minute that I was allowed to actually distill this stuff..⁣
Crystal clear, 100 proof, Acorn Spirit malt.⁣
Imagine that !⁣
⁣
I think I would let it age for a while in an Oak barrel then bottle it up with a couple of toasted acorns and a few fresh Oak leaves.. ⁣
I dont even know what such a drink would be called !⁣
⁣
Or maybe I'd use it as the base spirit for an Acorn Nocino. ⁣
⁣
*Fun fact* Nocino sounds Italian and perhaps the name is but the drink itself originated right here in Britain !⁣
⁣
Anyway licensing laws prohibit me from doing any of that stuff so idk.. I'll just let it sit a while longer, take a #shelfie and decide what to do with it later.⁣

  • ELDER (Sambucus nigra) is a deciduous tree in the Adoxaceae family that produces edible flowers and berries.

This is the time of year that Elderflower is starting to appear in the hedgerows across the UK, by late May you will see the white umbels of flower everywhere from pathsides, woodland, field edges, gardens and pretty much anywhere with soil.

The leaves and stems are not edible, and when raw the berries can cause nausea and other unwanted symptoms if eaten in large amounts so we usually use elder in cooking, elderberries can be used to make jams and juices, even wines and stuff if you wanted to, the juice would need to be boiled. The Elderflowers that grow in spring are one of nature's most delicious treats, the thing I'd highly recommend to do with them is make an elderflower cordial, this is a strong drink and you use it like juice, mix a small amount of the cordial into water or any other drink to add an amazing flavour similar to grape juice in my opinion.
I'll post an elderflower cordial recipe when the flowers are all out later this month

Elderflower can be safely identified by its leaf shape and its unique smell, if you break a leaf and smell it then you'll be able to identify elder for the rest of your life just from the smell, it smells like cat wee! But don't worry the edible parts of the tree taste wonderful!
Lookalikes for the elder tree include the Wayfaring Tree and some other Elder species, just identify it by leaf shape and smell and you're safe.

  • I have been hoping to find pennywort growing near me but yet to find it. So I was super excited to see it growing here (Dartmouth). I love the taste, tastes like a succulent pea shoot or mangetout. I first tried it in my Wild Box from @foragerltd and I've been searching for it ever since
