Join a Totally Wild UK professional forager to learn the art of foraging and to discover the vast range of wild edibles lying all around us before enjoying a delicious wild food meal.

What to expect

This is a full-day foraging experience lasting 5-6 hours encompassing the rules and ethics around foraging, tips on how to confidently ID different plants, edible, medicinal, and herbal uses for plants, and much more!

Guided by your forager, you‘ll explore the area and get to know all of the edible, and not-so-edible plants and fungi growing nearby. This part of the course will take the form of a slow-paced walk with frequent stops to discuss finds from flowers, fruits, fungi, seaweeds and tubers. 

You will have an opportunity to taste a range of pre-made wild food tasters from syrups, flavoured salts and alcohol infusions.
