About this event

Are you looking to reconnect with nature having spent too much time inside? Are you having a rethink about your impact on the natural world? Or are you just a food-lover who wants to try new and unique flavours?

This is your chance! Find out what delicious wild food grows in typical UK suburbia and learn how to forage for your own food.

Foraging Taster Session - Foraging Workshop & Walk in The Lake District image

This course is designed to get you as involved as possible - this includes identifying, picking and tasting a range of wild plants that will be found on the day. There will also be lots of samples of food and drink for everyone to get stuck into!

What you can expect from your Foraging Workshop:

  • a short introduction outlining foraging tips, ethics, etiquette and law
  • a circular walking route taking in different growing environments around the newly renovated Bassenthwaite Lake Station, taking in the stunning Lake District scenery.
  • a closer look at edible wild plants and any poisonous lookalikes by a professional forager.
  • small tasters of wild food, drink and preserves. These may include liqueurs, syrups, salts, jams, wines and even freshly-picked items straight from the hedgerow!
  • each course is run with in an informal fashion, where attendee questions and contributions are more than welcome
  • our foraging workshops can be tailored to suit certain mobility requirements. Please do get in touch in advance of buying your tickets to discuss this further.

Well-behaved dogs may attend these events but must be kept on a lead at all times.

Parking and where to meet:

Parking at Bassenthwaite Lake Station can be a bit tight, but there is plenty of space along the road just outside the main entrance. Please be considerate when leaving your car and do not block gates or access for other road users.

I will be standing prominently on one of the verges by the front of the station - keep your eyes peeled for a tall, bearded man with a wicker foraging basket!
