Marbury Country Park is a beautiful venue on the edge of Budworth Mere, making it within easy reach of Warrington, Chester, Stockport, Crewe, Wrexham, Macclesfield, Manchester and even Liverpool. The mixture of open grassland, woodland and brooks makes this park perfect for foraging.

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, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.

There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.

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 and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.

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


Marbury Country Park


Opposite the toilets and food van there is a covered area of picnic benches, we will meet there.

Please note that you cannot access the park via Marbury Lane from the south as there is a locked barrier across the road approximately 1.7 miles from the park.
