We’ll be meeting at 12pm at the Bitts Park Car Park. 

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.

After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch, based on what we have found. All of our food is seasonal, so what we make depends on recent weather and what is around at that time of year. In Spring we will be making use of the fresh wild greens that the Park has to offer.

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.

    Please note that 3.30pm is only an approximate finish time, which may alter depending on circumstances on the day.
