16th April - 8th October 2021
The course is run by Michael White who has a passion for foraging and wild food and is a well-known writer and lecturer on the subject. Michael will start the morning with a talk and discussion at the Plough Inn pub on Lewson Street, Norton Street (between Faversham and Sittingbourne) with tea and coffee to get you off to a warm start.
The walk will take a circular route around the Kent countryside where you will learn to identify the wide variety of edible plants and fungi available in the wild. The walk will then end back at the pub, giving you the opportunity to stop for lunch, choosing from the delicious pub menu.
You will take away a better understanding of food in the wild and how to use what’s just outside your doorstep.
‘Michael was exceptional – friendly, engaging, informative and extremely knowledgeable. He had a great connection with the group, answered any questions clearly and a passion for his subject that was easily conveyed to those who had some knowledge and none (most of us). Highly recommended thoroughly enjoyed, thank you.’
