About the Course
Our half day foray is an excellent introduction to the experience of discovering wild foods. We will guide you through different habitats teaching you how to explore the landscape, identify and harvest the seasonal wild foods it offers. The experience is wondrous; depending upon the time of year you could find yourself munching on tree leaves, flowers, plants, berries or some truly astonishing mushrooms! The Northumberland landscape presents a splendid array of edible flora, fauna and fungi – you are sure to be amazed.
We will return from our foraging expedition to the Wild Food Wagon where we will further investigate the bounty we have collected and enjoy a light lunch with wild food ingredients.

What's included in the price?
Our half day wild foray begins at 10:30am. We set off for a gentle walk through Kielder forest learning how to find, identify and harvest many of the wild plants that are abundant in the springtime. We return to our converted military truck which is our wild food kitchen for the day and sit down to a wild food lunch with some of the days finds as well as some wild food delights created by ourselves.
