Hampshire, Ewhurst Estate Autumn Foraging Course
Day : Sunday
Date : 05/11/2023
Time : 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm (Approx End)
Meet Point :
We will be meeting at the main Ewhurst Estate entrance gates at 12pm. The instructor will be there from 11:45AM, waiting to let everyone in and guide them to the location inside the estate. Please see a photo of the gate and directions further down this page.
Please arrive no later than 12pm, as we may not be able to come back to the entrance during the walk.
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 pre-prepared wild food treats. At the end, we’ll create a 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.
There are no facilities at this location and there is usually no access to a toilet.
3:30pm is only an approximate finish time and depending on certain factors, the course could run until 4pm. Please note that 4pm is only an approximate finish time, which may alter depending on circumstances on the day.
