The Foragers Calendar : A Seasonal Guide to Nature’s Wild Harvests

John Wright is the country's foremost expert in foraging and brings decades of experience, including as forager at the River Cottage, to this seasonal guide. Month by month, he shows us what species can be found and where, how to identify them, and how to store, use and cook them.

You will learn the stories behind the Latin names, the best way to tap a Birch tree, how to fry an ant, make rosehip syrup and cook a hop omelette. Fully illustrated throughout, with tips on kit, conservation advice and what to avoid, this is an indispensable guide for everyone interested in wild food, whether you want to explore the great outdoors, or are happiest foraging from your armchair.
John will be signing his book, The Foragers Tale.





We are pleased to say that all our events remain FREE. We do this through the generosity of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and the Arts Council. We do need to raise money to continue our valuable work in the future.
This year we are offering a new way for people to support ReadFest and Pen to Print's work with Pay What You Can Afford, giving you the option to pay what you can afford for the events you attend, there is no obligation to pay, but we hope you can see the value of what we are doing and support us in this way.
