The Forager’s Calendar by John Wright

The perfect handbook for the bookshelves of any forager, novice or experienced. It has a handy, detailed guide for every month of the year with lists of what you can expect to find when, with lots of insightful knowledge and clear, colour photographs from a seasoned forager. There is also tonnes of practical advice to get you started or as handy reminders, from chapters on the law around foraging, what kit you’ll need and safety; as well as fungi, seaweeds and preserving – to name a few. Somehow all this info is squeezed into a compact book that doesn’t take up too much space! I’ve had it on my shelves since last January and it has been one I’ve picked up often throughout the year and dipped in and out of it as the months come and go. As a newbie at foraging, I have found the photographs and month guide particularly useful in identifying what we have come across on our nature walks.
