Come and enjoy the wild abundance of the Sharpham Estate with your children. We will discover what the season has to offer and pick some wild plants to take back to our sheltered outdoor kitchen for a fun cook up.
We’ll talk about which ones we can eat and will take the ones we need back to the woodland kitchen for a cook-up and simple wild food lunch.
We will learn a little about fire and get the woodland fire lit where we can then relax in the warmth with herby bread and a warm drink and final questions.
This day is for you if you are:
adults and children of any age and experience who are looking to discover more about wild edible plants.
interested in learning more about the natural world
a beginner to foraging
a fan of the Great Outdoors
looking for a fascinating, family day out
