Surrey, Guildford, Chantry Woods Foraging Courses
AVAILABILITY & BOOKING
ABOUT THE COURSE
Chantry Woods’ approximately 200 acres of woodlands are home to British Oak, Ash, Beech, American Redwood and Fir to name but a few, making it ideal for summer and autumn foraging.
Being on the outskirts of Guildford these courses can be easily reached from Woking, Farnborough, Farnham, Leatherhead, Aldershot and Weybridge.
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 woods, teaching you how to identify the different 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.
After the walk we will end the day with a tasty 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 summer and autumn we will be making use of the array of tasty wild mushrooms that the forest 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.
