Queen Elizabeth Country Park sits in the midst of the South Downs and includes a mixture of open grassland, dramatic downland and vast woodlands. This provides a diverse habitat for a wide range of wild plants and mushrooms to flourish throughout the year.
The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the Countryside Act.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the park, teaching you how to identify the different plants and mushrooms we find.
We will stop along the way for some seasonal homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
After the walk, we'll end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found and some pre-prepared homemade treats.
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.
