Fancy a spot of foraging? For amateurs Dorset provides the perfect location to give wild foraging a try with a selection of courses on offer. The Dorset Wildlife Trust actively encourages sustainable foraging promising shellfish to edible seaweeds on the coastline, to plants such as fat hen and chickweed as well as fully stocked hedgerows. John Wright, known from Channel 4’s River Cottage, is a leading authority on foraging and leads food forages throughout the year.

Further afield, the Isle of Skye provides the perfect spot for those who want to try this fashionable and historic trend. Find wild garlic, meadowsweet and gorse flower in the countryside then head to the shoreline for cockles, clams, mussels and seaweed.
