On these foraging courses, you will be taken on an exciting wild edible plant journey to discover Nature’s hidden larder.
Whether it is in the city, through the hedgerows, along riverbanks, or on the coast.
Wild food is the ultimate in ‘local’ and ‘seasonal’ produce and historically has always been a source of food for country people.
Foraging re-awakens your senses so you gain a greater appreciation of Land and your place in the natural cycles and rhythms of life.
