Autumn Foraging Course

Date: 6 October 2017

Location: The Red Shoot Inn, Toms Lane, Linwood, Ringwood, BH24 3QT

Time: 12:30 - 15:30

Cost: £55

This is a simple foraging course where we will identify a selection of edible and poisonous wild plants, fruits and mushrooms.

Wild Food UK are coming back to the New Forest!

Every year so far we have found ceps, oyster mushrooms, chanterelles, winter chanterelles, hedgehog fungus and much more. These are normally our most successful fungi courses of the year. There are not many better places around to learn about the wonderful wild foods that are available in the UK.

Our venue for meeting and discussing our finds will be the Red Shoot Inn, a lovely pub in the west of the Forest.

The course starts there with a 20 minute introductory talk on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes and where they relate to foragers. Then we’ll set off for a two to three hour walk identifying various fruits, plants and mushrooms. We’ll stop somewhere along the way for some lovely homemade refreshments, such as our wild mushroom soup and hopefully some elderflower champagne too. This course will also include a light wild food based lunch at the end.

The Forestry Commission have given us permission to lead educational events only, so as a group we will not be picking anything to take home. We will pick sparingly for identification purposes and the meal at the end only. Please observe their voluntary ban on picking mushrooms at all other times that you are in the Forest.

There are limited spaces available so please book your place online.
