  • Booking essential

Join expert forager Lizzy, who will take you on a wander to seek hedgerow and woodland edibles that are full of surprising Spring 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 stop to enjoy our own packed lunches midway, along with sampling some wild food makes and bakes samples brought along by your host to show how easy it can be to incorporate your finds into everyday meals and cooking.

We will be covering good foraging practice, preservation techniques and what species to look out for in the coming months.

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.

£35 per person, suitable for adults or children over 12 years old.
