for wild food in Autumn event
a whole load of wild food all around us; it’s just a matter of knowing
edible, what is poisonous and what to do with it. We’ll give you an
to the wild food you can forage for in the autumn including roots,
fruits, nuts and wild mushrooms. There'll be plenty of useful tips on identification to stay safe while foraging for wild food,
we'll cover the legal aspects of foraging so you stay on the right side
of the law, discuss sustainability, look at how to prepare and cook the
wild food we find and do a bit of tasting along the way.
you would like to focus more on wild mushrooms please book onto our
autumn forage at either Hamsterley Forest, Kielder Castle or at Thornley Woodlands nr Gateshead
