ABOUT THE COURSE
There is a huge variety of edible plants in the South East, most of which can be found in the areas around our vast capital and Banstead has to be one of our favourite places under that umbrella. There is much more green space than tarmac but it’s still well within the M25, making it easy to get to from Croydon, Sutton, Reigate, Epsom and Leatherhead.
We will meet in Woodmansterne at the Woodman Pub, this is roughly a mile walk from Woodmansterne Train Station. The course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers. Drinks are available from the pub.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the area, 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 homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will head back to the Woodman for 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.
