Dartmoor Summer Foraging Courses
AboutDartmoor is one of the most beautiful places in the UK with not many roads but plenty of wild food and clean growing environments for the freshest tasting plants we find anywhere. These courses will be held in Lustleigh, a beautiful little village within reach of Bovey Tracey, Chudleigh, Newton Abbot, Exeter, Torquay and Paignton.
We will meet at the Cleave, 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. Drinks are available from the pub.
After the talk we'll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk in the local area, around the woods fields and hedgerows, identifying the different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will head back to the pub for a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day to help you to remember what you have learnt.
