Wild Food Foraging Walks – Autumn, The Woodland Harvest

£30

Price is £30pp. Children under 12 go free but must be accompanied by an adult. Booking essential. 

These walks last 3 hours. Sundays during 2016. Please see our Facebook page or contact us for details.

Our walks take you through the seasons into the different habitats at the different times of year our bodies are most naturally drawn to them.

In the autumn, our ancestors would start retreating back into the shelter of the woodland and look to natures larder of starch rich roots, berries high in vitamins, nuts high in fats and protein and the wonderful world of fungi. We will cover different ways of identifying and using the plants, but will also focus on ways to store the harvest to use throughout the winter months, through making sauces, pickles, and drying.

We will cover some basic fungi identification, but for a more in depth fungi experience please consider joining us for one of our fungi weekends.

All of our walks identify the edible plants as well as some of their poisonous ‘lookalikes’. There is always plants to taste and examples of goods that can be made with them, for e.g. sauces, teas. We will discuss other uses of the plants from fire making to primitive artist materials.

Other Information

Please dress appropriately for the weather. You might also like to bring a basket to gather small amounts of what we find and also a walking stick can be useful, especially on our rocky shore walks.

There will be a chance at the end of the walk to reflect on what we have covered so you may wish to bring a flask and some snacks and plenty of drinking water. If we can we will aim to finish the walk near a café or pub!

Please note that whilst you will be given guidance as to the uses of the different plants and fungi we see, any decision to taste anything is done entirely at your own discretion. Different people can be affected by different plants and fungi, even when they are known to be edible.

Unfortunately we can not allow dogs, except guide dogs, on our walks. We also ask that you please do not leave them in your car as we will be gone some time. Thank you for your cooperation.

Physical Requirements

Our walks are open to anyone who can meander over uneven ground for up to two miles.

If you have any specific medical concerns then please inform your walk leader before the walk or at the time of booking. Please also take along any necessary medication you may need
