ABOUT THE COURSE

These courses will take place in Ouzel Valley Park, by kind permission of the Parks Trust. This beautiful park’s mixture of hedgerow, meadow and riverside make it a great location for suburban Spring foraging. It is within easy reach of Bedford, Buckingham, Aylesbury, Northampton, Luton, Bicester and even Stevenage.

The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.

Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk¬†around the park and along the river Ouzel, teaching you how to identify the different Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.

There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.

After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.

After the course, we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day to help you to remember what you have learnt.
