Spring Greens Foraging Courses


Course being run twice in 2021 due to the "rule of 6" (5 guests plus one instructor).


Spring is the time of new growth and the countryside offers a wealth of delicious free greens – be they salad leaves, wild vegetables, shoots or herbs. There are also some edible flowers, roots and a few fungi to be found. With a little know-how these can all be gathered to give salads, soups, sauces, desserts and many other dishes. They can also be ingredients in teas, beer and other alcoholic drinks. Join us on one of our spring greens foraging courses to learn and experience the opportunities available. The day includes a three-course meal and you will be sent the recipes afterwards.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, for 2021, the cooking element is NOT running. This is now a half-day event. During the foraging walk, you will gather the wild ingredients to allow you to prepare the meal at home. Recipes will be provided in advance so you can buy anything you need.

This is a half full day course comprising:

  • A foraging walk for spring greens, herbs, edible flowers and spring fungi
  • An indoor session preparing, cooking and eating a three-course lunch based on our finds

The lunch menu is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
