foraging for produce
and linking into our communities for support
Forage events and workshops are good fun, but they also have a hard edge in that many people are looking to save a bit of money and also get in touch with the sights, sounds, smells and feel of the environment we live in.
Food and socialising are two of the most fundamental aspects of our lives, and if these are brought together, the feel-good factor is tremendous.

What’s out and about in your area
We can go to you, or you come to us. We have the basic equipment to run a workshop wherever we are needed, and we even have a cooker and crockery too.
A tap and a sink nearby is usually all we need, although the better the facilities, the easier it is to run the workshop.
