Hi everyone,

I found this website whilst looking for information on foraging - had a quick browse around then signed up - I can see myself spending a lot of time here - some really interesting topics!

I've always loved the outdoors - walking, mountain biking, bird watching, wildlife - everything really! I've recently taken an interest in forraging and can't wait to gain enough knowledge to get myself out there and start finding new and exciting things to eat.

I'm based in Surrey, Croydon to be exact (yeah, I know...) and wondered whether there are any foraging meets down this way?

Anyways, just thought I'd introduce myself, I look forward to spending some time here!

Thanks

Glenn

Hi Glen, welcome to Ish. :wave:

Don't know about any meets in Surrey - the Wiltshire posse are quite active though :lol:

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free

It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
