Discover the wild food secrets of North Somerset’s hedgerows and countryside, with a day of foraging in beautiful rural Somerset
There are many edible plants that can be found growing in our hedgerows, woods and fields – but how can you spot them? On our one-day Foraging course, you will be guided safely through the pleasures and perils of nature’s harvest.
You’ll have fun roaming around the beautiful countryside, identifying and gathering your edible crop, leaving you informed and inspired, ready to get back to the wild and forage your own suppers.
10:000 – 16:00
Arrive and make yourself at home
Meet at the barns and start the day with a light breakfast (including a ‘forager’s nip’) before heading off foraging.
You will spend the morning exploring the countryside and woodlands, collecting anything wild that can be eaten. Learning to safely identify, pick and prepare your harvest.
We’ll keep your energy levels up, with delicious snacks on location.
Demo session one
Back in the barn, you will learn to identify the food that was found on your forage. Taught simple ways to recognise plants, as well as lessons in poisonous species, conservation, the laws of foraging and more exotic wild foods like birch sap and spring fungi.
Demo session two
To whet your appetite before your foragers’ supper, view dishes that can be created with simple ingredients from the wild.
Your feast will include your foraged harvest, along with local and seasonal fare prepared fresh that day.
Leave full of confidence ready to get the most out of your garden.
