A Foraging and Wildfoods Day


Course dates coming soon

Participants will be gently guided on their voyage of discovery by highly experienced forager and wild foods expert Carol Hunt who will be supported by bushcraft and survival skills instructor Phil Brown.

This course is run from 10am - 4pm.

Group sizes are small so that there will be the very best opportunity for everyone to learn and participate. The day will include:

  • Wild foods foraging walk
  • Where not to forage and what to avoid
  • Poisonous plants
  • Foraging and the law
  • Introduction to fire lighting - make minimal impact and leave no trace

  • Group wild food preparation and cooking
  • Enjoying your own wild food banquet

The day will conclude with a look at reading material, reference books and field guides used and recommended by both Carol and Phil. You will also be presented with handouts and recipe details. Long trousers and long sleeved tops are preferable as we may venture amongst the vegetation.

  • Warm clothing

"Year 5 took part in a ‘Badger Bush Craft’ workshop. This was a whole day of practical activities led by Phil Brown, a specialist in outdoor learning. Following this a number of children together with their families were invited to take part in a Saturday workshop to learn survival skills, building shelters, lighting fires etc. This was part of an extended services project."
