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.

A Week In The Woods?

In 2021 the Foraging Basket Day Workshop is followed immediately by the Wild Food & Foraging Day Course.  Although standalone courses, there is the option of attending both in the same weekend, meaning that you'd weave your own foraging basket on the Saturday and then fill it with wild foods on the Sunday!

Additionally, the Carving 3 Day Masterclass and the 2 Day Bark Bags & Containers Workshop will be leading into both of the above courses, giving you the option of combining all four courses to make a full week of traditional crafts and wild food.  This crafty course combo all comes at a total discounted price of £595!
