Intro to foraging wild & medicinal foods

What you'll do

Prepare for a wild food foray in rural Somerset. Join your host Dave for three hours of foraging magic in Goblin Combe's enchanting surroundings.

Dave will be demystifying the weird, wonderful and fascinating world of wild plants and fungi. Learn how to safely identify them and watch out for the more dangerous ones you need to avoid. Find out about plant's awe-inspiring medicinal powers and how to heal our bodies with food. Dave will also bring you up to speed on sustainable harvesting practices.

As you're absorbing all this knowledge, you'll be lapping up the beautiful scenery, identifying forages, and tasting them as you go along. As your foraging adventure draws to a close, you'll sit down for a wild food picnic. All the edible and medicinal goods we have nestled in our woodlands will truly amaze you!

Walks are not usually more than a mile or two, but if you have problems covering such distances, please contact your host so they can make suitable arrangements.

Minimum fitness level required.
