West Sussex, Crawley, Tilgate Park Spring Foraging Course
Day : Friday
Date : 31/03/2023
Time : 11:00 am - 2:30 pm (Approx End)
Meet Point :
Smith and Western,
We will be meeting on the grass outside the Smith and Western at 11am.
All our courses start with a talk on our foraging rules. We’ll then set off for roughly a 2.5 hour walk around the area, identifying the edible and poisonous species we find, and picking some for the meal later on. 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.
We recommend you bring
- Comfortable, weather appropriate clothing and footwear
- Cup to try our (warm) drinks during the walk
- Plate and cutlery for the meal at the end of the course
- Water / drink to stay hydrated
- Camera, note pad & pen
While masks are not mandatory, feel free to wear one if it makes you feel more comfortable.
Under 12 year olds can come for free, within reason; but please let us know how many will be coming in advance.
2:30pm is only an approximate finish time and depending on certain factors, the course could run until 3pm.
Please note that all parking at Tilgate Park is restricted to a maximum height of 2.1 metres. If your vehicle is taller you may find parking in the residential area along Titmus Drive a short walk from the meeting point.
