Spring Wild Food & Foraging Day

If you've only got a day to spare and you love the idea of dipping into natures larder then this is the course for you.  We'll take you on a gentle walk through ancient woodlands and Wiltshire downland to introduce you to the plentiful flora to be found there.  We'll gather some and leave others alone but by the end of the day you will have learnt about what's tasty, what's edible, what's not good to eat, what can be made into tea, string, glue, soap, insect repellent and a whole host of traditional food and medicinal uses for the plant life of the British countryside.

Your gathered ingredients along with some wild game will form a late lunch to be cooked over the embers back at camp.

Course starts at 9am and finishes around 5pm

Fully catered - wild game lunch will be provided

It's a good idea to bring a camera on the foraging walk to record images of the plants we don't gather, although remember you've got to carry it all day.

If you'd like to make a weekend of it why not join us on the Saturday for the Hedgerow Basket Workshop and make your own foraging basket.

This course has been re-scheduled to run after June 2020. Please email to register your interest and as soon as we have new dates, you’ll be the first to know!
