Foraging for Food with ‘re-wilding’ Richard Mawby at Rural Antics, Hanwell Wine Estate, Nottinghamshire

10am to 4pm – Saturday 14th September 2017

We’re looking forward to spring here at Rural Antics. The vineyard comes back to life after a long winter – the grapes start their annual growth cycle with bud break, the wildlife returns to our beautiful countryside setting and we can once again invite local people to join us in getting closer to nature.

Our one day foraging for food experience will be hosted by Richard Mawby and includes a homemade two course lunch served with local wine. Wander through the vineyard as Richard points out all the edible plants which could make a healthy addition to your diet. You’ll be encouraged to enjoy the pure and natural flavours of freshly harvested plants as Richard introduces unique flavours you can weave into your meals. By the end of the session, you should be able to confidently identify several edible wild plants and will go home with lots of ideas to try in your own kitchen.

Based in Northampton, Richard follows a primal ideal, reconnecting with nature and thriving on locally sourced wild animal products, foraged plants and raw goat’s milk. He explains: “Foraging is a great way to re-learn the connection we once had with the wild, to be at one with your surroundings, experience nature and to re-tune with your instincts. This workshop is a practical, hands-on approach to dining from nature’s pantry and the vineyard couldn’t be a more perfect location.”

With only one date available for this workshop, spaces are limited. To ensure the quality of your personal experience, the group size will be limited to fifteen people. Outline of the day
