A Guide to Finding Wild Food in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire

An attractive and easy to use, pocket-sized guide to the wild-food species found in the three counties.
About the book


Product description (full) Foraging for wild food not only adds to the enjoyment of a walk through woods and fields, or along a riverbank, it is a wonderful way to savour the seasons. It can be a solitary journey of discovery, or a communal activity with family and friends. Wild food is also part of our wild heritage. Many of the plants mentioned in this guide have been used by our ancestors for hundreds of years, either as valuable food or medicinally, and often have a fascinating folklore associated with them. The three counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire are home to many of the most common and flavoursome wild foods that can be found throughout the year. This Guide helps to identify 35 species. Each entry is beautifully photographed, while the text provides key characteristics and habitat information.
