Foraging Courses

Hedgerow Harvest offers a range of foraging 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 foraging 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 (private) events. Our scheduled courses are run in Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire.

Seashore Foraging Courses
