  • Friday 26th July 11:00am until 2:30pm
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.

Shalford Park is a beautiful riverside park on the outskirts of Guildford, running along the River Wey. It can be easily reached from Woking, Farnborough, Farnham, Leatherhead, Aldershot and Weybridge.
With a mixture of open grassland and riverside this beautiful park is the perfect place for a diverse range of edible wild foods to flourish.
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 park, 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.
