The Forager’s Calendar is the latest book from John Wright.
John Wright lives in West Dorset with his wife and (sometimes) their two daughters. He has had seven books published: River Cottage Mushroom Handbook, River Cottage Edible Seashore, River Cottage Hedgerow, River Cottage Booze Book, Naming of the Shrew, Natural History of the Hedgerow and The Forager’s Calendar. He is now researching a new book with the working title ‘The Natural History of British Grasslands’. It is due out some time in 2021.
In addition to his books, Wright contributes articles to various magazines, principally Country Life. He gives the occasional radio interview and lectures widely on foraging, natural history and the Latin nomenclature of organisms.
Wright is one of the most experienced foray leaders in Britain, having led around 800 forays since he began in 1992. He still takes for every year for a variety of organisations (such as River Cottage). See www.ediblebush.com for more details. He also leads private forays for individuals, corporate days and even the occasional stag and hen do.
