This is a simple foraging course where we will identify a selection of edible and poisonous plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms.
The woods near Croydon are plentiful in wild food; in fact we think they are some of the best woods we have ever been foraging in. There are a huge variety of edible plants in the south east most of which can be found around the area.
We will meet in Farleigh Common at the Harrow Inn at 12pm. The course starts there with a 20 minute introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
After the talk we’ll set off on a 2-3 hour walk around the area identifying a selection of different edible and poisonous Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find. We will stop along the way for some of our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
Then it’s back to the Harrow for a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found.
There are limited spaces available so please book your place online.
