We are The Foragers. We forage well. We make amazing food from plants, fruit and fungi we find in the wild.
After running foraging walks and workshops for the public from our wild food pub in St Albans, The Verulam Arms, for many years, The Foragers are moving into the world of corporate wellness and team building.
If you and your business are looking for a team away day, training session, office party or wellness retreat with a difference, why not join us in the wild for a day of wild food foraging, fun and feasting? Our unique approach to foraging for wild food makes an incredibly memorable day out, and beats laser tag and go-karting any day!
Our experiences are completely unique and bespoke (see here for all we do), but on a typical adventure, we’ll spend time with you among the fields and forests, showing you how to identify many of the common wild plants we use every day to concoct our amazing food and booze. We’ll also tell you a bit about both the science and folklore behind mankind’s use of these plants through the ages. Then we’ll head back to the pub or a mobile campfire where you’ll sample some of the tastiest examples of what we can do with wild ingredients.
On one of our wild experiences, not only will your team spend valuable time socialising together in a unique and memorable setting, and learn some handy bushcraft and survival skills, but they will return with new perspectives on the world, their work and wellbeing. Nature is its own proven reward.
