Foraging and wild foods



Foraging and wild foods

Discover a range of seasonal wild foods, whilst exploring the beautiful Cotswolds countryside. This is a fantastic opportunity to see what forageable delights await when you venture outdoors.

You will spend around four hours exploring, and looking for an interesting array of wild edibles, as well as discussing some of the many other features of this fascinating area. Whilst you walk, you’ll learn about some key principles of foraging, plus matters of safety, and a little about the laws regarding harvesting wild food.

This is primarily a learning event, so please do not expect to take a huge amount of items away with you, however there will be plenty of opportunities to discuss the plants you see, including how they can be used, plus a chance to talk about any further information required regarding suitable books, tools and equipment.
