Wild plant and mushroom identification course with wild food tasters.
This beautiful Cotswolds park provides the perfect habitat for Spring foraging and the woodland’s carpet of wild garlic is a sight to behold. Being just of the M5, Woodchester Park is within easy reach of Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Chippenham, Chepstow, Bristol and even Bath.
We will be meeting at the car park. The course starts there 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 Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
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, 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.
