This course is a simple foraging walk around Bute Park where we will identify a number of edible and poisonous wild mushrooms, fruits and plants.
This beautiful city centre park is surprisingly plentiful in wild plant, flower and mushrooms species throughout the year.
We will meet at the Castle Street entrance to the park outside the Pettigrew Tearooms at 12pm.The course then starts with a 20 minute introduction on how to forage safely and sustainably, 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 beautiful riverside, stopping to talk about the different edible and poisonous plants, fruits and mushrooms that we come across. We then discuss and taste our finds over a light lunch.
