    Event Summary

    These courses will take place in Ouzel Valley Park, by kind permission of the Parks Trust. This beautiful park’s mixture of hedgerow, meadow and riverside make it a great location for suburban Spring foraging. It is within easy reach of Bedford, Buckingham, Aylesbury, Northampton, Luton, Bicester and even Stevenage.
    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 park and along the river Ouzel, teaching you how to identify the different Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
    There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
    After the walk we will 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 wild garlic pesto.
    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 spaces available so please book your tickets online.

    Price: Adults £45, Under 16's £22.50, Under 12's Free
