Welcome to the
Forager's Calendar Website!
News: I have added information about my Fungus Forays in the New Forest to this website. My original website for this was ediblebush.com, which I have now closed.
The forays take place every October, and if you wish to come along then do click here, where you will find the dates, costs, how to book and so on.
This site is designed to complement the book with extra material, including some more forageable species, more photographs, a simple key to the gilled fungi described in the book and more.
I am also using the site to support my new book:
A Spotter's Guide to Countryside Mysteries.
This is devoted to all the things one sees on a country walk for which an explanation does not come readily to hand: Smut fungi, dew ponds, broomrapes, strip lynchets, piddocks, scarlet caterpillar fungi,
The Forager's Calendar.
To order a copy, please visit your local bookseller or follow this link to Amazon.
On this website you will find:
Additional chapters on species which did not quite make it into the book.
Additional photos of many species mentioned in the text.
A key to the (gilled) mushrooms (both edible and poisonous) mentioned in the book.
Links to useful foraging-related sites.
Details of my public forays.
