These courses will be held around Freshford. This lovely little village on the outskirts of Bath is within easy reach of Trowbridge, Frome, Warminster, Chippenham, Devizes and even Bristol.

We will be meeting at the Inn at Freshford, a charming 16th Century Cotswolds pub surrounded by interesting walks in the beautiful Somerset countryside. The nearby fields, riverside, hedgerows and woodland provide a mixed habitat for a range of wild foods to flourish throughout the year. 

The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for, our foraging code and a brief of the Countryside Act, where it relates to foraging. Drinks are available from the pub.

Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the local area along the River Frome, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.

We will stop along the way for some seasonal homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup, elderflower champagne or fruit leathers.

Then it’s back to the pub for a 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 and in autumn the array of tasty wild mushrooms that the woodland has to offer.

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.
