Jacqueline is passionate about the healing properties and natural nourishment that can be found in easy to recognize plants and leaves all around us. Foraging is an incredible way to slow down, rewild and reconnect with nature. She believes if you're interested in foraging, you'll want to protect your environment. We believe, as many food production practices are far from sustainable, learning ways to supplement your diet with seasonal wild goodness, collected carefully and mindfully, is a powerful force for good.


If you'd like to learn how to identify wild edibles, Jacqueline can’t wait to welcome you, as there's nothing like being shown the plants first-hand.


Please bring: Sensible footwear and clothing for walking, foraging basket/Tupperware/bag and a reusable cup for hot drinks, plate & cutlery.


Dogs and children welcome by arrangement. All dietary requirements can be catered for with advance notice. Our menus are usually mostly vegetarian.

Plant Foraging Guidelines & Laws
The laws around foraging are notoriously vague and contradictory, we are in the process of putting together an online course in collaboration with Ecology Training UK to assist in this area.

  • Countryside act of 1981 is where most foraging laws come from on common land (including the foreshore) key things to remember are:
    1. Under common law you have a right to forage the four ‘F’s


The four ‘F’s counts as long as they are not a protected plant, or there are local bylaws displaying any ‘do not remove any flora’ signs. Council owned land and public footpaths are considered good places to forage. The majority of National Parks permit foraging, some with limits on certain species, check directly to be certain. It is not an offence to collect for personal use on private land, if you are technically trespassing, all the landowner can do is ask you to leave by the quickest and safest route.


  • Always be certain of the I.D of the plant. Consider picking a small amount to check before harvesting more – don’t take more than you need and then not use it either, this is considered very bad practice
    3. Never uproot any plant, this is illegal on private land
    4. Be respectful and mindful when harvesting any wild food, only take small amounts where there is abundance, if there is only a little don’t take any at all
    5. Pick carefully, slowly and precisely, avoid gathering large handfuls in case you accidently pick something harmful by accident
    6. Make sure you pick from places that haven’t been sprayed with pesticides, and away from busy roads, avoid high dog traffic corners
    7. When trying a new ingredient, especially mushrooms, just try a little first to ensure your body is happy with it
    8. Pick ingredients in their prime, again mushrooms in particular must be fresh or they can be harmful
    9. In marine areas, different restrictions apply and it is crucial to research the area
    11. Pagham is in a SSSI area and has areas in a Marine Conservation Zone, as such it is generally accepted to forage small amounts of secondary species, but not primary species unless you have permission. You can look up the exact areas on the Natural England website.

12. Please note we currently DO NOT PICK ANY GROWING WILD FOODS from the SSSI or Marine Conservation area in Pagham, we identify and educate only.
