Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire Spring Foraging Course

These courses will take place around the Long Hanborough side of Blenheim Palace’s vast grounds. We expect to find plenty of foraging treats from all the well established flora here.
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 grounds, 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 found to help you to remember what you have learnt.
Limited spaces available.
