Foraging Courses

 

All walks cost £25 per adult and last 2.5 – 3 hrs (including foraged snacks/picnic). Children under 13 are £10. I send out a PDF after the walk with further information detailing all the plants we have found.

I offer 2 discounted tickets per walk for those on a low income/unemployed. Please get in touch by email to book these (no questions asked).

Please email (alex@islandwildfood.co.uk) or use the contact form on the website to get in touch if you are interested in booking a private foraging walk.

By booking onto a course you agree to the terms and conditions.
