Pick your own lunch on foraging course

Where: Woodchester Park, Nympsfield, near Stonehouse, Glos GL10 3TS

When: Friday, May 10, 11am and Saturday, June 1, 12 noon

There's a chance to learn more about foraging in a beautiful Cotswold location in the next few months.

Educational foraging courses are being run by Wild Food UK at Woodchester Park on Friday, May 10, and Saturday, June 1.

This beautiful Cotswolds park provides the perfect habitat for Spring foraging and the woodland's carpet of wild garlic is a sight to behold.

Foragers will meet at the car park and the course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.

They will then set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the park, teaching you how to identify the different Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that can be found.

There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.

After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.

After the course we will email delegates a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.

To find out more about the course and to book a place, visit the Wild Food UK website. There are limited spaces available so please book your place online.
