Hedgerow Harvest offers a range of full day foraging courses. Most of these include the preparation (and eating!) of a three course, wild food meal based on our finds. This is done indoors in a kitchen and not outdoors over a fire, meaning the recipes we use are easily transferred to your own kitchen at home. Our day foraging courses are run in Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire. Please note our last scheduled courses in Wiltshire will be in Autumn 2017.
Spring Greens Foraging Course
Spring is the time of new growth and the countryside offers a wealth of delicious free wild food greens – salad leaves, wild vegetables or herbs. Other foraging opportunities are for edible flowers, roots and Spring fungi.
Summer Foraging Course
Summer brings varied foraging and wild food opportunities. You could be crabbing, gathering wild fruit or collecting greens/flowers from hedgerows, fields, river and shore.
Seaweed Foraging Courses
Seaweeds are very much in vogue, being served in top restaurants and sold in some supermarkets. Join us for a day of seaweeds, gathering them from the shore then cooking a three-course meal with seaweed in every course.
Mushrooms Courses / Fungus Foray
A full day mushroom course going into more depth than our fungus walks. Suitable for beginners who want to learn about identifying wild mushrooms / fungi.
Fruit and Nut Foraging Course
The Autumn brings a bountiful harvest to the wild food larder. Our foraging focus will be wild fruit and nuts. We will identify many edible species and learn how they can be used in soups, main courses, desserts and drinks.
