This is a simple foraging course where we will identify a selection of edible and poisonous Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully some mushrooms too.
We’re excited to be running our first courses at Marbury Country Park, a beautiful new Cheshire venue on the edge of Budworth Mere. The mixture of open grassland, woodland and brooks makes this park perfect for Spring foraging.
We’ll be meeting at the picnic benches at 12pm for a short 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 for a 2-3 hour walk around the park identifying the different edible and poisonous Spring shoots, plants, flowers and mushrooms that we find. There will be breaks along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
We will finish the day off with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.
There are limited spaces available so please book your place online.
