Description

This half day of wild food foraging is for folks curious about Britain's wild foods, but who have little or no experience and wish to know more. This is experience is very much the first foot on the ladder in exploring the edible wild.

Marcus Harrison, who runs the foraging courses, is a UK authority and specialist on wild foods, and from time to time gives talks on the subject at the Natural History Museum. He has given regular wild food walks and talks at the Eden Project, and is involved with teaching survival professionals life-saving foraging skills.

And long before wild food and foraging became fashionable, Wild Food School featured on BBC Countryfile, Westcountry TV and the Good Food Channel ('Simon Rimmer's Dinners'), has appeared in The Times, Sunday Express, and other publications like Countryfile Magazine, been involved in numerous BBC Radio broadcasts, and frequently advises TV production companies.

On your foraging walk you will be shown how to identify wild edible plants, such as wild garlic, nettles and even daisies as well as learning the different plant facts and recipes that can be made using your findings. Foraging is a great way of understanding the natural world around you, not only will you find food but you may catch a glimpse of deer and other wild animals as well as discovering some new surroundings.

You will spend three and a half hours walking around the picturesque countryside with Marcus. He will advise you on edible plants as well as teaching you different plant facts.

We recommended that you bring a notepad and a camera as well as being dressed appropriately for the weather on the day.
