Hedgerow Harvest offers a range of foraging and wild food courses. Whether your interest lies with wild mushrooms, edible plants, fruit and berries or seaweed and shellfish we have a course to match your needs. Our courses cover the identification of edible and poisonous species as well as cookery, safety, the law and sustainable foraging. Most of our full day courses include the preparation (and eating!) of a three course, wild food meal based on our finds. We also offer half-day foraging walks and bespoke foraging opportunities. Our scheduled foraging and wild food courses are run in Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire.
Our foraging course gift vouchers make excellent Christmas presents for the forager in your life. Don't chance what you get given - tell them what you want!
