Gemma Cramlington Forager 41

The Cramlington Forager

Welcome to The Cramlington Forager, where Gemma, a seasoned foraging guide based in Cramlington, Northumberland, invites enthusiasts to delve into the sustainable practice of foraging. Born from a lifelong passion that started with childhood blackberry picking adventures, The Cramlington Forager was established to extend the joys and lessons of foraging to the local community.

Launched in 2021, the business challenges the idea that one must be nestled deep in the countryside to engage in foraging. Northumberland’s rich tapestry of breathtaking landscapes, woodlands, coastlines, and even urban parks, offers abundant foraging opportunities that are often surprising and rewarding.

The Cramlington Forager is committed to promoting the use of local green spaces, highlighting their critical role as natural havens for both wildlife and humans. Through foraging, people gain unique insights into nature's secrets, from seasonal changes to emerging flora, enhancing their understanding and commitment to environmental stewardship.

Gemma shares her extensive knowledge through social media, a blog that features tips on identifying wild foods safely, sustainable foraging techniques, and recipes using wild ingredients. Aligned with the natural cycles, her practices emphasize the health benefits of living in harmony with the seasons.

Additionally, Gemma contributes to community projects like 'The Friends of Doddington Wood' and actively participates in the Cramlington WI as a WI Climate Ambassador. In 2024, The Cramlington Forager proudly partners with Visit Northumberland, aiming to showcase the region's natural beauty and vibrant culture.
