Forage for fun in the wild woods of East Devon

Learn food foraging techniques at Holyford Woods with the Countryside team

East Devon District Council's Countryside team is planning a Family Foraging event on Saturday 19 September, from 10am to 12.30pm  at Holyford Woods, near Colyford.

Basic foraging techniques will be demonstrated during a walk in the woods, followed by a taster session around the campfire - weather permitting.

The cost for the event is £3 per person. Booking is essential as places are limited; call 01395 517557 or email

Councillor Iain Chubb, Portfolio holder for the Environment, said:

We aim to show families how much fun can be had collecting edible fruit, nuts and wild plants in the woods, and to share ideas on how they can be used in cooking.
