Edinburgh Summer Foraging Course

Wild Food Uk returns to The Flotterstone Inn near Penicuik for some Edinburgh Summer Foraging Courses this August.

Edinburgh Summer Foraging Course

About Edinburgh Summer Foraging Course

Three dates to choose from: 16th, 17th or 18th Aug 2018

These Summer foraging courses are less than 10 miles from the centre of Scotland’s beautiful Capital, and less than 5 miles from the A270 ring road south of the City.

We’ll be meeting at The Flotterstone Inn, a lovely welcoming little country pub on the edge of the wonderfully picturesque Pentland Hills. The course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers. Drinks are available from the pub.

Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the Flotterstone area of the Pentlands, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.

We will stop along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.

After the walk we will head back to the pub for a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly some creamy wild mushrooms.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day to help you to remember what you have learnt.

There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh Summer Foraging Course are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
