Cerney House Gardens is one of The Cotswolds' hidden gems. It offers a Victorian walled garden and mature woodland, among its delights. Located at North Cerney, north of Cirencester,  the gardens can be explored before or after this foraging course as admission is included. And, the ornamental planting gives an opportunity to discover some edible ornamentals, as well as wild plants and mushrooms. 

This Cotswolds foraging course walk venue is easy to get to from Cirencester, Cheltenham, Swindon, Gloucester, Oxford, and Stow-on-the-Wold, with Bristol under one-hour away. 

When we meet up, we will go through laws and safety points of foraging before heading out to discover the wild food in the area.

"We both felt it was one of the best short courses we have ever been on, in a beautiful and exceptional setting. Thanks so much for devising and delivering the experience"

​The course includes:

  • an overview of foraging laws and safety best practice

  • exploration of the venue

  • introduction to a number of edible species 

  • instruction on how to tell edible species apart from poisonous lookalikes

  • tips on harvesting

  • information on where to find these species again

  • recipe ideas

  • wild food sample/s such as soup, jam, jelly, pesto, vinegar, cordial 

  • digital information sheet sent after the course
     

Any samples given are 100% plant/fungi-based or have a 100% plant/fungi-based alternative.

 

The exact meeting location and park access details will given two days before the course date.

 

Participants must be aged 18 or over - sorry, no children under 18 or babes in arms on this course.

 

Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the course.

We cannot guarantee what species will be growing on any given course date. As a rough guide, Springtime and summer courses should be predominantly plant focused, with mushrooms sometimes found; Summer courses should also have fruits and flowers to learn about, and Autumn courses should be mostly mushroom-focused with a small amount of plants available
