Forager Courses & Events

Foraging courses advertised here taught by Miles Irving. We aim is to equip you with confidence and knowledge of both plants and their habitats. Plant identification skills are a key part of the teaching, starting with the general characteristics of the plant families: you will leave knowing how to recognise plants from at least five of the major families, as well as having found, identified and eaten several plants from each! In the process you will also get a feel for what to expect to find in different kinds of places or habitats.

At present we have no Kent based courses scheduled but will be planning some dates soon. In the mean time feel free to contact us for a tailor made course in your area or here in Kent, for groups of 6 or more. We can do anything from short foraging walks lasting just a couple of hours to full weekends with tops chefs cooking what we find. We have a number of venues in Kent and elsewhere that can host one day or two day events, with professional kitchen facilities available for wild food cooking workshops and accommodation in gorgeous rural surroundings.
