Thetford Forest is a large pine forest to the east of England within reach of Downham Market, Bury St Edmunds, Norwich and even Cambridge. We'll be meeting at St Helen's picnic site, an area of the Forest which has a mixture of grassland, woodland and riverside, this diverse environment allows for many different 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, where they relate to foragers.

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, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our wild food soup or elderflower champagne.

After the walk we will head back to the picnic site to 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 creamy wild mushrooms.
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 space available so please book your tickets online at www.wildfooduk.com.
