Seashore foraging courses on the Jurassic coast

Our little patch of Dorset wild has so much to offer us, we figure that adventure means something different for everyone and you don't always get the biggest kicks from the highest jumps. For us no matter where you are there is always an adventure to be had it's just a matter of looking, and that's where foraging comes in.

When it comes to foraging, seeing people first recognising that glorious relationship between the outdoors and what they eat is always a special moment. It’s exciting! Donning your wellies and grabbing your basket and exploring the hedgerows and seashore is like a treasure hunt of the natural kind. Being able to eat what you have found in this adventurous way is an added bonus – it becomes about the journey.

A day in the life of Fore / Adventure

we don't need to travel far to find something new. Every day delivers us new bounty and every day our shifting shores provide us with new experiences, our story never stays the same because we don't stay still. One day we could be catching fish on the kayaks & the next the pots will deliver us fresh crabs or lobster. With plants that change throughout the seasons, the same day is never repeated twice.

Our location

Our spot in Studland on the Jurrassic coast in Dorset is a place of beauty and bounty, perfect for foraging. A long sandy peninsula with a heavenly harbour where we explore the salt marshes on one side and a golden stretch of sandy shore on the other with woodland in between, there is certainly no shortage of nature to explore.

It is here that the majority of our foraging courses run but we do venture out further for some of our events and we can happily bring Fore to you to run bespoke days for your group or corporate event closer to home if you are looking to explore your own patch with us in tow.

What you could be foraging

Natures larder is forever changing, spring time brings us new shoots, like wild garlic, alexanders and cleansing cleavers, in summer we are treated with edible blooms and more gorgeous green goodies and sea vegetables. Autumn delivers nourishing nuts and a bounty of berries.  Even in winter you can still forage and find yourself wild foods to eat. Best of all we have an abundance of edible seaweeds all year round so the larder is never empty.
