An introduction to foraging: a springtime foraging walk

Friday 20th May 2016, 10am – 1pm

Spring is in the air and with it comes the perfect opportunity to hone your foraging skills!

Join us at for this springtime walk, taking in the fields and woodlands of Forty Hall Farm and surrounding parkland, and discovering just how many wild treats the countryside has to offer.

The walk will involve safely picking and eating a variety of leaves, berries, roots and shoots, as well as opportunities to sample new foods and drinks made with wild ingredients. You will learn to identify plenty of edible plants and will discuss everything from nutrition and medicine, to history, botany and cookery!

The walk will last about three hours and will be led by John Rensten of Forage London. John is an experienced forager and wild food enthusiast. When he’s not running foraging walks around the streets and parks of London, John can be found mushroom hunting in the New Forest or combing the seashore of Dorset.

Places are £40 per person and can be booked online here. Please note that an online booking fee applies.

Refreshments will be provided and there are a maximum of fifteen places on the walk.
