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 foraging vouchers are valid for 12 months 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, whilst 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
wild food sample/s such as soup, jam, jelly, pesto, ferments, vinegar or cordial
digital information sheet after the 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.
