New Forest Spring Foraging Courses
  • The Red Shoot Inn, Toms Lane, Linwood, Ringwood
    BH24 3QT
Join us for an informative foraging walk where we will identify the different edible & poisonous plants, trees & mushrooms we find. Enjoy a homemade refreshment on route and a light Wild Food lunch with us afterwards, to include some of what we have found.

We will meet at the Red Shoot Inn, 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. Drinks are available from the pub.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the village, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
Then it’s back to the Red Shoot for a 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.
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.
