During your week of foraging, the tutor will take you out into the ancient landscapes of Wiltshire. You will explore river valleys, woodland and open downland to find tasty items to include in your diet. You will learn to identify safely and gather edible plants, studying a little of their ecology along the way. The tutor will demonstrate how to make a native 'coffee' and how to prepare foraged foods, including forest fruits, flower cordials, toasted wild seeds and sautéed summer fungi. You will also learn about poisonous plants and how to stay on the right side of the law when foraging. Each day, there will be an opportunity to try a little alfresco food simply made from the plants and fungi that you have gathered.
