infographic: a month by month foraging guide


If you have been tempted to find out more about foraging for your food instead of just purchasing it at the supermarket or local shop, then we can help! Not only can foraging be a really healthy and eye-opening experience, it can offer a great way to spend time with friends and family and save you money too! If you head to one of our treehouses for a luxury staycation, then you can head out and explore the foraging delights that await, once you know what you’re looking for of course.

One of the best things about foraging is the fact that the quality of the food you forage is enhanced compared to how you buy it in the shops – you’ll see when you’ve found enticing forage treats for yourself.

If you think you cannot forage because you do not live in the country, do not be put off. There’s an ever-growing urban foraging movement, and you’d be surprised at how many “fruitful” opportunities there are. It’s amazing how much potential you pass by in day to day life before you knew what you were looking at/for.

Enjoy, and happy foraging!
