Cheshire Spring Foraging Courses
May 11, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Marbury Country Park is a beautiful venue on the edge of Budworth Mere, making it within easy reach of Warrington, Chester, Stockport, Crewe, Wrexham, Macclesfield, Manchester and even Liverpool. The mixture of open grassland, woodland and brooks makes this park perfect for foraging.
The course starts 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 deer park and the castle grounds, teaching you how to identify the different Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
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, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
