Become a Safe, Confident Forager and Discover the Joy of Foraging Through The Year

Foraging is an ancient practice that helps restore your connection to the natural world and boosts your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Knowing which plants nourish and heal you deepens your sense of belonging to the Earth.

For over fifteen years, I have experimented with and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent countless hours digging through scientific papers and reading hundreds of books.

I even went so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time, I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.

I have written this collection to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage.

To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone.

An incredible asset to my foraging education! – Liza Jasmina Stirling (foraging teacher)

Forage Through The Year covers fifty-five of Britain's and Northern Europe's most common wild plants.

These foraging notebooks are delivered immediately as downloadable PDFs. 

You can keep them on your mobile device when you go foraging. No need to drain your monthly data package. And no need to be connected to the internet.

The collection is over 2000 pages, and each plant notebook includes:

Multiple full-colour photos to help make identification easy.

The food and medicine use.

The folklore and plant stories.

Lots of delicious recipes.

Which part of the plant to use.

When the best time to harvest is.

In-depth nutritional profiles for each plant are covered.

Safety notes: what you need to know if pregnant or on medication.

I created this collection of notebooks to help you become a safe, confident and knowledgeable forager.

They are an invaluable addition to any forager, herbalist, gardener, horticulturist or naturalist’s library, providing plant-lovers with a much-needed resource for understanding nature’s most useful wild plants.
