  • Booking essential

Have you ever foraged for delicious wild foods before? Would you like to learn what is in season that can be foraged safely with a little care, to supplement your diet?

As part of our Harvest events programme, book a short foraging walk with local expert Lizzy to seek hedgerow and woodland edible treats that are full of surprising flavours!

We will be looking for wild fruits, herbs, mushrooms and plants that are all around us and teaching you key identification features/preferred habitats to give a good introduction to foraging for your own wild food journey going forwards.

We will be covering good foraging practice, sustainability, preservation techniques and what species to look out for in the coming months after your foraging session with us.

You may wish to bring a camera, notepaper, something to drink as we walk and ensure you have sturdy comfortable footwear/weather appropriate clothing for the wander.

28-29 September, 3.45-4.35pm £15 per person, does not include admission prices for any earlier than 3pm. Booking in advance essential
