Thetford Forest is a large pine forest to the east of England. We’ll be meeting at St Helen’s picnic site, in an area of the Forest where this diverse environment allows for many wild plants and mushrooms to flourish.
The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the area and along the Little Ouse river, teaching you how to identify the different plants and mushrooms that we find.
We'll break along the way for homemade refreshment, such as our wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
Afterwards we'll head back to the picnic site to end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found and some pre-prepared homemade treats.
We'll email you a list of everything we discussed on the day to help you to remember what you have learnt.
