The long days of summer bring a new range of wild food for the forager. The summer fruits, such as wild Gooseberries, Raspberries, Mirabelles and Sea Buckthorn berries are ready to harvest. Delicious fungi can found in old, unimproved meadows. Flowers can be gathered for making into drinks, both soft and alcoholic, and wonderful puddings. There are still salad greens, wild vegetables and herbs to be found in hedgerows, fields and beside river and shore. For those that enjoy shellfish, crabs may be caught.
This is a full day course comprising:
- A foraging walk at the coast looking for seashore plants and then crabbing
- An inland walk gathering wild food from meadow and hedgerow.
- An indoor session preparing, cooking and eating a three-course lunch based on our finds.
- An illustrated talk on wild foods.
The lunch menu is flexible and can be suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
