Foraging and Wild Food Directory

The Foraging and Wild Food Directory

Free online resource for edible wild plants, fungi and lichen in the UK

This page is intended as a free guide to the edible wild plants, fungi, seaweeds and everything else we come across running foraging and wild food courses in the UK.

Edible Plants, Fungi, Seaweeds and Lichens of the UK

The lists below are not exhaustive and do not contain every single edible wild plant in the UK, but we are working on adding to this directory all of the time and update the descriptions, photos and notes regularly. This page is intended to be a free guide for foragers, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
