Here’s how to fast-track your plant identification skills and wild edible plant knowledge so you can quickly become a safe, confident forager.

When I started out foraging, I found it excruciating not being able to identify wild edible plants correctly.

It took me months of trawling through my library’s natural history section, flipping through every wildflower identification guide I could get my hands on.

There were photo books, books with watercolours and line drawings.

And one called a ‘flower key’ with virtually no pictures but lots of text, so I thought it must be really important.

My early days of identifying wild food plants were nothing short of frustrating.

If you can relate to this problem, then I have the solution.

The Eatweeds Academy is the quick-start way to dramatically increase your plant identification skills and foraging knowledge.

Combining video, photos and text, you’ll discover the forgotten stories and lost knowledge of over 50 wild food plants.

The structure of the membership allows you to follow the plants through the different seasons and in various habitats, between March and October.

The membership is suitable if you live in Britain, Northern Europe or another temperate region.

Imagine what it would be like to pop outside your front door and confidently pick your next meal from the huge number of wild edible plants that are available.

The Eatweeds Academy officially launches on Monday, 25th March 2024.
