Foraging Course Vouchers


Foraging course vouchers are the ideal gift for lovers of the great outdoors or those looking to explore nature's larder. They are perfect for those seeking an environmentally friendly gift option.

Our vouchers are valid for 12 months (vouchers bought between now and Christmas 2020 are valid until 31 December 2021) and can be used to book onto one of around 100 half-day courses we run per year. Courses are held at venues in areas including Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Derbyshire, Hertfordshire, Nottinghamshire, Norfolk, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, West Midlands, and near to Birmingham, with more being added.

More spring/summer 2021 dates will be released in early 2021, while late summer/autumn dates will be released by May 2021.

The course includes:

  • an overview of foraging laws and safety best practice

  • 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, ferments, vinegar or cordial

  • digital information sheet after the course

Participant on a foraging course

We cannot guarantee what species will be growing on any given course date, such is the nature of foraging. Springtime and summer courses are predominantly plant focused, with mushrooms sometimes found depending on seasonal weather. Summer courses should also have fruits and flowers to learn about. Autumn courses should be mostly mushroom-focused with perhaps a small amount of plants available.
