Basic Autumn Foraging - fruits and roots but not mushrooms.

  • Sep 28, 2014 · 9:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Being able to identify and know the uses of our native plants and trees is an interesting and useful skill to have if you spend time in the countryside. It is also essential if you are foraging plants for food or medicinal uses.

This session will look at the identification and uses of some of the more common and easily recognisable trees and plants in season at this time of year NB This course will not cover foraging for mushrooms. We will also cover foraging law and good practice. We will be walking through our wood and along local footpaths so you will need appropriate footwear and wet weather clothing. You might also like to bring along suitable bags if you wish to collect samples and a notepad and pen.  We will finish off the session preparing and eating some of our finds. 

This session will take place in our 21 acre dedicated site near Horsham.

All of our team are all qualified Bushcraft instructors, first aid trained and have our own unique skills.

Please bring your own lunch and snacks. We will provide tea and coffee. 

Due to the nature of the day and the activities, the session is open to anyone over 14, but those under 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult (ratio of 2 children to 1 adult) who will be responsible for supervising the children throughout the day. 

If required, we will provide knives for your use, so please do NOT bring your own.

    Thanks

      Hello, thank you but as my friend can come I'll get a lift with her so won't be at the train station. Thanks.

    Following from my comment below Got a day return to Christ's Hospital. But if by some small chance anyone is coming from East London - Stratford way let me know (though I suspect the train might actually be quicker...)

      Hi. Kev will be able to pick you up that morning

    Is there anything like this up north in Lancashire

    September 1, 2014

  • Clare

    I'd very much like to come to this but I don't have a car and if it's impossible to access by public transport I don't want to pay now and find out I can't come later. Is there any chance you can publish a meeting point address?
    Thank you

    • Phil L.

      Hi Clare. If Horsham station is easier to get to then that is possible too.

      September 1, 2014

    • Clare

      Thank you - I'll check some bits out and be in touch

  • Harriet

    Hello. I would love to come to this. I have a husband and 10 month old baby, would it be possible to bring them along? If this was ok, we would be considerate and make sure the baby does not disrupt the day for anyone else.

    September 4, 2014

    • Phil L.

      Hi Harriet. Yes that would be fine in principle. You need to bear in mind the following.
      We will be walking a reasonable distance and the terrain is unsuitable for a buggy so your baby would need to be carried.
      Whilst we do have shelter in the woods we are still outside for a long time.
      My dog Hebe will be with us. She is fine with small children (usually ignoring them) but at 18 months is often lively.
      Hope this helps you come to a decision
      Regards
      Phil
