Foraging and Wildcrafting Series: Wild Garlic and Edible Spring Greens 26/27 March 2022 with Courtney and Michael White of Rural Courses


If you’re interested in sustainability, foraging, local wild food, herbal medicine, fermentation and food preservation processes- we will offer you a full day educational experience in a beautiful outdoor rural location. 

The group will split into two and half will go with Michael from Rural Courses for an in-depth exploration of wild greens, safe foraging practices, and a dive into the wealth of edible tasty wild greens, salad greens, shoots and sap options in March.

We will forage for an array of fantastic seasonal greens, salad leaves and edible shoots. The local wild superfoods: NettlesCleavers, Dandelion, Garlic Mustard, Alexanders, Wild Garlic, Common Hogweed among many others. We will also learn about any dangerous look-alikes and things to avoid.  

Of course we never stop looking for edible or medicinal fungi and we might come across these if we are lucky: Turkey Tail, Birch Polypore, Oyster, Velvet Shank, Artist Conk, Jelly ear.   

You’ll swap over and have a wildcrafting and preservation demo with Courtney of food preservation methods including fermentation, vinegars, oxymels, dehydration, salts, honey and alcohol etc. We will learn and sample methods to help preserve the harvest in ways to enjoy throughout the year. 

There will be plenty of wild food tasters, a light lunch and drinks to sample and share together on the day.
