Event description
A 4-hour workshop with a foraging expert, including ID guidance, finding and tasting wild ingredients and a walk at Chorlton Water Park

About this event

Are you looking to reconnect with nature? 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 yourself.

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 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 beautiful Chorlton Water Park.
  • a closer look at edible wild plants and any poisonous lookalikes by a professional forager with a focus on Winter species.
  • small tasters of wild food, drink and preserves. These may include syrups, salts, jams, soup and even freshly-picked items straight from the hedgerow!
  • the opportunity to hand-pick seasonal wild ingredients
