Foraging on the Isle of Wight

Hi! My name is Paul Noakes and I have been foraging on the Isle of Wight for over seven years.  I would love to share all the Isle of Wight’s natural larder with you!

From Razor Clams and Cockle collecting and identifying edible Seaweeds right through to wild garlic and elderflowers…..the list is endless!  Come and experience an afternoon to remember!

The seashore boasts some of the finest wild food in the land and the range of different shellfish and seaweeds are highly sought after food. The tides allow us to range far out onto the beach and exposed rocks on a identification foraging walk, focusing on shellfish and seaweeds found on our beautiful coastline.

Come and learn about our natural world and what we can eat in it!
