    Default Foraging with kids - fact sheets?

    I'm trying to persuade the head to let me take a group of kids out foraging. I have a place in mind that we can get to without crossing major roads, and where there are blackberries, elder-berries, sloes and haws. What I would like though, is some fact sheets or similar where there are illustrations of said plants and their berries, and also of some other common/edible weeds such as dandelions, nettles etc. A bit like what you get in Food for Free but bigger so I can print them out?

    I've Googled but had no joy as yet, so wondered if any of you good peeps had come across anything like this?
