A long time ago…
Most people knew how to find their own food and supplemented that with food they bought from local shops.
Then people bought most of their food from shops and added to that with some wild food.
Now very few people know how to safely find and prepare wild food at all, and we’re missing out on some amazing flavours and nutrition.
Now foraging for wild food is seeing a new surge in interest; However the information being shared in online groups can be conflicting, overwhelming and sometimes just plain wrong!
Now, more than ever we need a simple reference site that we can trust, and which has plenty of the sort of information that we need.
Welcome to the Herbalist Helper
Herbalist Helper is for anyone who wants to know more about which plants, trees, fungus and seaweed can be safely, responsibly, and sustainably foraged and eaten, what to do with it once you have it, and especially how to avoid the things that can cause you harm.
Herbalist Helper is for all levels of forager, from newcomers just wanting to know a little about it, to people who want to supplement their diet with some free, wild food, all the way to preppers and survivalists who want to know how to survive on wild food alone.
What exactly is the Herbalist Helper?
Recorded foraging walks
There really is no substitute for a face-to-face foraging walk with an expert, but for those times when you just can’t get out, we have recorded some walks which you can watch at your leisure.
Interviews with foragers
Podcast interviews with some top foragers talking about how they got started, their favourite things to forage and places to go and what they really love about foraging.
Video recipes and downloadable recipe cards

A monograph is a collection of information about one specific tree, plant, seaweed or fungus. Each monograph has information on how to identify, harvest and use each subject. Also included is botanical classifications, dangerous lookalikes to watch out for, other uses, historical uses and medicinal uses.
