A Fascinating Introduction to the Edible Landscape

This short but illuminating introduction to the fascinating world of wild food foraging will turn your country walks into an inspirational journey of discovery as your senses become alert to the potential of nature all around you.

Under the expert guidance of Becca Flintham, an experienced educator with over 20 years in the field, you will

  • acquire and develop plant identification skills
  • learn how to be a safe and responsible forager
  • get new and exciting cooking ideas
  • learn about the amazing restorative and therapeutic properties of everyday plants
  • get great ideas for saving money on your weekly food shopping
  • be inspired to use plants in arts and crafts

With a deep and authentic understanding of the natural world, Becca will help you to reconnect with nature and find new inspiration in your everyday surroundings as she unlocks the mysteries of the bounty at your feet.

The two and a half hour workshops will begin at 10am and 2pm on Mondays, with a brief in our education department before heading out into the park to explore its various habitats. After immersing yourself in the foraging world, you’ll round off the experience by preparing, cooking and tasting some of the wild foods that we’ve gathered, before enjoying a relaxing day in the park.

Places on the workshop are strictly limited so you will need to book in advance.
