Foraging walks & courses, bushcraft walks & courses and free to attend public events.
Spend the day learning to make your own spoons and spatulas - essential items for your bushcraft cooking. You will get to harvest your own small scale timber, learning which species, growth habits and locations make for the most successful and sustainable activity before using your freshly harvest materials to craft your cooking utensils.
A full day course focussing on plant based foraging. At this time of year there are an abundance of plants in flower or fruiting and this makes it an ideal time to nail down a lot of plant ID with specimens showing you their true colours and full suite of features! The day will be split between harvesting and processing activities.
The autumn is a very abundant time of year with trees and plants either fruiting or in seed and many of the fungi species putting in their annual appearance too. On this course you'll learn how to safely engage with fungi as well as plants so you can take full advantage of what's on offer.
Fungi... often represented as a part of the vegetable Kingdom - wrong! They are in fact a separate Kingdom and as such are an extremely diverse range of organisms from jelly like blobs to hard timber like conks. Explore the fungal kingdom that surrounds you and how the different species can be used based upon their different properties. This one day course introduces bushcraft related subjects utilising fungi including; Fire, medicine, crafts, clothing and of course food!
This full day course is for the novice forager wishing to learn more about the wonderful world of mushrooms beyond "can I eat it?". Fungi are so much more than just a wild food source and all the different families and species found along the way will be looked at.
