Ayrshire, Craigengillan Spring Foraging Course
Day : Saturday
Date : 30/03/2024
Time : 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm (Approx End)
Meet Point :
All our courses start with a talk on our foraging guidelines. We’ll then set off for roughly a 2.5 hour, slow-paced walk around the area, identifying the edible plants and mushrooms that we find, and picking some for the meal later on. We’ll also identify the poisonous species and learn what to avoid when foraging. Along the way, we’ll stop for some wild food treats. At the end, we’ll create a tasty meal based on what has been found. Then after the course, you will be emailed course notes to help you remember everything you have learnt.
For your day, we recommend you bring
- Comfortable, weather appropriate clothing and footwear
- Cup to try our drinks/soup during the walk
- Plate and cutlery for the meal at the end of the course
- Water / drink to stay hydrated
- Camera, note pad & pen
Under 12 year olds can come for free, within reason; but please let us know how many will be coming in advance so that we can make catering arrangements.
3:30pm is only an approximate finish time and depending on circumstances, the course could run until 4pm.
Meeting point details: As you approach the buildings, the lane will continue to the left. Don’t follow the lane, instead drive straight ahead into the main courtyard parking area. Our instructor will meet you here.
