In 2020 Christian/Chrisdave gave up being a chef and in Lockdown set out on a journey to discover as many edible, interesting and medicinal plants, herbs, fruit and fungi.

Within in Months he had created a small community of clients and followers and decided to start a career in sustainable foraging.

With the help of the Enterprise Allowance Scheme for start up business, Urban Forage was formed with the aim to be Brightons Best Wild Food supplier, Forage guide and Forage Consultancy.

​After launching in 2021 we now have a portfolio of hand-picked clients, regular Wood and Sea workshops and seasonal Fungi and Wild Plant workshops throughout the year. 

We made our First Festival appearance and advised on local environmental issues and projects.

In April 2021 we moved into our Woodland Workshop in The Stanmer Craft Museum, where you can find demonstrations, forage workshops, hand crafted forage goods, fungi and a Crazy Foraging Guru who is always happy to stop and chat or give tips and locations.

In 2022 we already have over 50 dates planned over 10 workshops with new dates added weekly, and plan to launch more Foraged food and continue to grow our social media platforms, where you can find tutorials, Id guides and charming forage content.

Look out for our products in Restaurants and Bars such as Amarillo and Gung Ho.
