Smith and Western, Tilgate Park, Tilgate Drive, Crawley, West Sussex.
Saturday 26th October 12:00pm until 3:30pm
Join us for an informative foraging walk, where we will ID the various edible and poisonous plants and mushrooms we find. Enjoy a homemade refreshment along the way and a light 'Wild Food' lunch with us to round off the day.
Tilgate Park’s mixture of broad-leaved woodland, heathland and lakes create the perfect environment for a diverse range of wild food and interesting fungi to grow during the autumn months. The course starts at the Smith and Western with a short introduction on what to look for, and a brief of the general countryside codes. We’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the park, teaching you how to identify the different plants and mushrooms that we find. We'll stop along the way for some seasonal homemade refreshments such as our wild mushroom soup or fruit leathers. We'll end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found, including homemade treats. Afterwards, we'll email you a list of everything we talk about on the day to help you to remember what you have learnt.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
