15 foraging & wild food workshops found

Back to Food & drink courses
Foraging and wild food walks and courses are taught in woods, meadows and hedgerows across the UK. Learn to identify and harvest wild greens, edible leaves, herbs and mushrooms with expert foragers and herbalists in the picturesque wilderness of our green country. Collecting your own wild food (and medicine) is immensely satisfying and healthy - not to mention cost effective! Food foraging is an ancient skill that gets us back to the very basics of human life. Foraging workshops and walks make for a great day out in the fresh air, chatting with fellow foragers and learning delicious new recipes.
