Comer Woods Foraging Walk

Enjoy a walk around Comer Woods, identifying the different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Meet at the Comer Woods car park, the course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.

Set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the forest, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that are found.

Stop along the way for some seasonal homemade refreshments such as lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup, elderflower champagne or fruit leathers.

Finish the day off with a lovely wild food lunch based on what you have found. All of the food is seasonal so what you make depends on recent weather and what is around at that time of year.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
