What you'll do

If you’re curious about foraging, but don’t know your wild garlic from your nettles, this is a great place to start.

You’ll be left in the wonderful hands of your host Leah - a seriously passionate forager. Leah will cover all the basic principles. Sharing her knowledge as a bushcraft practitioner, Leah will show you how to safely identify and gather wild food, before embarking on your adventurous journey.

You will wander through Combe Hay Vineyard’s peaceful and private woodland. As you do so, discover the importance of sourcing seasonal and sustainable produce. Take in all this new knowledge while absorbing your picturesque surroundings.

Your walk will then take you to the local countryside where you are introduced to different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms. Leah will open your eyes to a world of flavours, wild food and folklore, you never imagined were possible. This experience will set you up for a lifetime of foraging.

Minimum fitness level required.

A brilliant day out and something different to do!

Vicky Hammerton, May 2022

Leah was a great facilitator and I learnt a lot. I felt the experience really helped connect me back to nature. I couldn’t stay for lunch, though wished I had but the walking experience was good in and of itself. Would definitely recommend as an intro course and was a lovely gift for my partner.
