Wild Food and Foraging Day
Forage for Wild food and Cook on a Fire
Our woodlands, fields and hedgerows contain a wealth of food if you know when and where to look. There are also hazards to avoid such as poisonous plants. On this course you will learn how to find and identify seasonal wild foods. You'll then have the opportunity to cook your foraged ingredients on an open fire, and enjoy an outdoor lunch together.
Learn about sourcing, preparing, and cooking food using traditional bushcraft methods. You will start by foraging for fruits, greens and roots, prepare game such as fish and/or other game (depending on availability), as well as basic bushcraft fare such as bannocks (flat bread).
The course provides plenty of hands-on, practical know-how about foraging, cooking and eating outdoors!

Identification and collection of roots, leaves, fruits, fungi and nuts (depending on season)
Safety and legal aspects of foraging
