Foraging Course Vouchers

About 
 

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 150 half-day courses we run per year. Courses are currently held at venues in areas including Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Norfolk, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, West Midlands, Hertfordshire, and near to Birmingham, with more being added.


The 2022 spring/summer dates are listed here. Late summer/autumn dates 2022 will be released from May 2022.

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

Vouchers are valid across all half-day foraging courses and do no guarantee spaces on any specific course, at any specific venue, in any specific area, or during any specific season. Over the course of the year we have three times more course spaces available than vouchers in circulation. It is the responsibility of the voucher holder to ensure they allow enough time to make a booking before courses fill up or their voucher expires. Extensions to voucher expiry dates can be purchased separately. 

 

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.
