Held at a location just outside of Tring, this foraging course runs across farmland and canalside in Hertfordshire. It offers great habitats to learn about wild edibles growing all around us in the UK in springtime. This foraging course walk is easy to reach from Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Oxford, St Albans, Hemel Hempstead, Amersham, Chesham and Leighton Buzzard.


On this walk, you will discover how to identify some commonly growing foods to forage for, how to avoid poisonous lookalikes, and hints on where to look.


When we meet up, we will go through the basics of foraging before heading out to discover the edibles in the area.


During the walk, you will be introduced to a number of edible species, given tips on harvesting and correct identification, and given recipe ideas. You will also get to sample a range of pre-made wild food tasters and preserves along the way, which could include soups, cordials, jams, pickles, herb salts, syrups, ferments, pestos or vinegars.


Exact meeting location given a few days before event.


Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the course. 


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