Who’s it for?
Our 1 day spring foraging course is for anyone who would like to gain an insight into the edible delights of the British hedgerow and woodlands. So if you’re curious about the plants that grow around you and wonder which you can eat and which you need to avoid, come and join us!
What will I do?
For this spring forage, our focus is on edible plants commonly found in the hedgerow and woodland. If you’re interested in the bounty of fruits nature has to offer, try our autumn foraging course as well!
From the meeting point we’ll take a gentle walk and look at common hedgerow plants that can be eaten; we’ll collect some as we go. We’ll also point out plants to be avoided. From the hedgerow we’ll move into ancient woodland and look at different plants, again collecting as we go.
When we arrive at our ancient woodland camp, we’ll have a refresher on the plants we’ve collected before settling in for the afternoon and cooking them. Everyone gets their own dish to cook and contribute to the banquet.
By making a booking you confirm that you have read and agree to our Terms & Conditions. Sorry guys, fully booked for 2018.
