This course is a simple foraging walk where we expect to be able to identify a selection of edible Summer plants, mushrooms flowers and fruits. We’ll also be providing a wild food based meal at the end, depending on what we find.
We’ll be meeting at The Flotterstone Inn, a lovely welcoming little country pub with interesting walks in every direction. The course will start there at 12pm with a 30 minute introduction on how to forage safely and sustainably, and a brief of the general countryside codes where they relate to foragers.
After a 2 to 3 hour walk in the area and surrounding woods we will go back to the Flotterstone Arms to discuss and hopefully taste our finds.
These are introductory courses but we still always expect to talk about and identify more than thirty edible wild species including plants, mushrooms, flowers and berries; plus obviously the poisonous ones to avoid!
We will email all of you details of all the plants we find to help you remember what you have learnt.
