Milton Keynes Spring Foraging Courses

Milton Keynes Spring Foraging Courses
 
Ouzel Valley Park, Simpson Drive, Simpson, Milton Keynes, MK6 3AY

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.  We’ll  then 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 to remember what you have learnt.

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