Milton Keynes Autumn Foraging Courses

Shenley Wood (car park area), Merlewood Drive
Milton Keynes MK5 6AA

Shenley Wood is a semi-natural ancient woodland, mostly consisting of Ash, Oak and Hazel.

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.

We’ll then set off for about 2.5 hours of foraging around the wood, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous plants and mushrooms that we find.

We will stop along the way for some tasty homemade refreshments such as our wild mushroom soup, elderflower champagne or fruit leathers.

We'll finish the day off with a light wild food lunch based on what we have found. All of our food is seasonal so what we make depends on recent weather and what is around at that time of year. In autumn this will usually include some tasty treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and creamy wild mushroom pasta.

After the course we will email you with a list of everything that we talked about on the day; to help you to remember what you have learnt.

There are limited tickets available so please book your tickets online.
