The Peak District is a breathtakingly beautiful area of England at the southernmost end of the Pennines and it is incredibly rich in edible wild plants and mushrooms. Eyam is a beautiful little village full of history, within easy reach of Buxton, Sheffield, Chesterfield, Macclesfield, Derby, Stockport or even Manchester.
We will meet at the Miners Arms where the course begins with a short introduction on what to look for, and a brief of the general countryside codes where they relate to foragers. Drinks are available from the pub.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the village, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will head back to the pub for a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
Please bear in mind this is a walk in the Peak District and our usual route does include a reasonably steep hill.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
