A bonanza of plants is to be found on this event, starting off near the end of the River Dees journey we walk back along the river inland to discover the wealth of edible, medicinal and poisonous species that can be found in a variety of habitats along the walk.
From teas to tonics and tinctures, this workshop looks at how plants can be used for making drinks, finding a variety of species that can be used in a simple tea, or those that go well with booze. Samples of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks will be had at lunch.
These events look at the time of year where there seems to be edible wild food everywhere. From mushrooms to berries we will be looking at everything we find and harvesting anything worthwhile to make some delicious foraged foods from, bring your basket!
This workshop will introduce you to some of the most iconic edible species to be found, we will spend the day learning how to identify some of the most common edible species and which we need to leave well alone. The Snowdonia national park offers the perfect back drop.
Our most popular event of the year, these workshops will help you understand how mushrooms and fungi work, how to identify the common species, how to search for the edible ones and also show you which species to avoid, we typically find over 70 species on this event.
Our first foraging events of the year and one of our most popular, join us as we take a walk through woodlands, hedgerows and meadows to discover the seasonal bounty our countryside has to offer. We will get hands on a be able to try a range of edible plants as we go along.
Grassland fungi are often overlooked but they are some of the most wonderful and colour fungi that occur in our countryside. This event will take you up into the hills to search for edible grassland mushrooms and seek out some more colourful, rarer species.
We offer a range of events for either one-to-one's or for small groups, where we can tailor and event to your needs, whether it is foraging for mushrooms, looking at making wild cocktails or perhaps a mixture of everything, we can use sites we know or come to you.
An exciting chance to come and get really hands on with spending the day picking wild edible species such as berries and mushrooms and then going back to the accomodation to look at the different ways to preserve our finds, making jams, liqueurs, vinegars and just drying.
Lauren is quickly becoming the Discover the Wild 'truffle hound' as her remarkable ability of finding different mushrooms and fungi is becoming widely known.
Whilst she spends her day looking after some of the worlds rarest bird species in her role as a zoo keeper, in her spare time she is often looking for wild edible mushrooms and helping out on events too.
Born and bred in Wales, she is the perfect choice to lead our Edible Mushroom Wales event, where she will help you to find some remarkable and tasty mushrooms.
David has led mushroom events since he 16 and his Gramdma had been teaching him about mushrooms since he was 5! David is an all round naturalist, happiest most when he his foraging but also loves birdwatching and looking for lots of other types of wildlife.
Rest assured that whilst you are out foraging with David he will be showing lots of other amazing wildlife too.
Welcome to our events page. Here you will be able to find information on the different workshops and courses we offer through the year, with links to booking on to them. We chose sites for the events that are pefect for showing you a wealth of diversity but not to bamboozle you with too many that you can not remember anything.
The exact locations of the events, along with where to park, nearest public transport etc is sent out about 1 week to 10 days before the event. This is because we have access to different sites and we chose the most productive sites close to when the event is happening to ensure you see as much as possible. Any questions?
