Guildford Summer Foraging Courses
  • Chantry Woods, St. Martas' Hill, Halfpenny Lane car park, Guildford, Surrey
    GU4 8PZ
Join us for an informative foraging walk where we will ID the various Summer plants & mushrooms we find. Enjoy a homemade refreshment along the way and a light Wild Food lunch with us afterwards.

Chantry Woods’ 200 acres of woodlands are home to British Oak, Ash, Beech, American Redwood and Fir to name but a few, making it ideal for foraging. Being on the outskirts of Guildford it can be easily reached from Woking, Farnborough, Farnham, Leatherhead, Aldershot and Weybridge.
The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the woods, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
