Our Wild Food Workshop allows you to spend a day learning to identify edible wild foods, take a leisurely foraging walk with our qualifed ethnobotanist and Chief Instructor Graham Couling and forage as you go. We will take a walk of discovery as we see what the hedgerows, fields and woodlands have to offer before returning to our cammp where we will put the cook fire and bank oven to good use and try the food we have identified and gathered on our walk.. The day is based at our woodland camp in Bayford Herts. We will meet a range of plants and learn to identify those which are edible and of course the toxic ones we need to avoid including the plant attributed with killing more people than any other Hemlock (Conium maculatum), which can be mistaken for members of the carrot family, particulalrly Cow Parsley.

We will seek out and edible roots, seeds, leaves, flowers, and fungi depending on the time of year, learn the essential identification charateristics of each species we encvounter and then put the wild flavours to the test back in camp. The day runs from 0930-1630, and as we will be out for a good part of the day you will need to bring a drink bottle and packed lunch. Tea coffee and biscuits will be supplied at our camp. Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. £90 per person.
