Learn all about foraging at this interactive course, where you get to try what you harvest.
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, the group will set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the park, learning how to identify the different spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments, including hogweed and wild garlic soup.
After the walk the day comes to an end with a tasty wild food lunch based on what has been found. This will include some treats made from recent finds, a wild salad that will be picked on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.
After the course is over, the organisers will email attendees a list of everything that was talked about on the day.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
Queen Elizabeth Country Park is situated just north of Waterlooville. Having the A272 to the North and the A27 to the South, makes it easily reachable from Portsmouth, Winchester, Chichester, Fareham and Eastleigh.
This impessive 1,400 acre Country Park sits in the midst of the South Downs and includes a mixture of open grassland, dramatic downland and vast woodlands. Opened by The Queen in 1976, the park was once called Buriton Forest and hosts the highest point on the South Downs National Park at Butser Hill.
