Get in tune with the rhythms of nature with this month-by-month guide to foraging.

Learn how to identify wild plants correctly, harvest them at their prime, and use them in delicious recipes and relaxing wildcrafting projects. Each plant is accompanied by photography to help with accurate identification.

Gathering wild food summons us to become active participants in our environment, fostering a profound sense of connection to the natural world around us. At the heart of foraging lies an intricate understanding of the changing seasons, the landscape, and the delicate ecosystems that thrive within.

Danielle Gallacher has been foraging for over 20 years, and in The Forager’s Almanac she shares her expertise on how to safely harvest our countryside’s edible bounties, and how to use them in your cooking – such as pickles, preserves, ciders and lemonades. Danielle also shares her top wildcrafting ideas, including resin firelighters, home remedies, salves and balms to sooth irritated skin.

Fully illustrated throughout and divided into 12 months, you will find practical information on:
– how to get started and what kit to bring
– when and where to forage each plant, with photographs for accurate identification
– medicinal and nutritional information for edible plants
– imaginative recipes using wild foods
– craft ideas for enjoying your harvest

The Forager’s Almanac provides all the tools you need to live in greater harmony with the land throughout the seasons, year after year.
