South Downs Summer Foraging Courses
Date(s) - 16/06/2019
12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Queen Elizabeth Country Park Visitor Centre
South Downs Way,
Queen Elizabeth Country Park is situated just north of Waterlooville. With the A272 to the North and the A27 to the South, it is within easy reach from Portsmouth, Winchester, Chichester, Fareham and Eastleigh.
This impressive 1,400 acre Country Park sits in the midst of the South Downs and includes a mixture of open grassland, dramatic downland and vast woodlands. Opened by The Queen in 1976, the park was once called Buriton Forest and hosts the highest point on the South Downs National Park at Butser Hill.
The course will begin with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the park, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.
After the course, we will email you a list of everything we discussed on the walk to help you to remember what you have learnt.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
