Product description

Know your Hogweed from your Hemlock? How to make country wine? Join Mat for a leisurely day exploring hedgerow and seashore plants.

Know your Hogweed from your Hemlock? How to make wild wine or sourdough? Join Mat for a leisurely day exploring hedgerow and seashore plants.

We meet for coffee or tea then spend the day exploring the nearby hedgerow, fields and coast, finding a variety of wild plants, herbs and seaweed. There'll be a snack break for a pastry (provided) and we have a late lunch, where Mat will host a simple three course lunch. There will be a talk about making Gin and liqueurs and some will be offered to taste with lunch.

DURATION: 9am start, 3.30pm finish (approx). This course runs from March-end of September. Please check availability if a particular date is required as we cannot guarantee there will be spaces.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

It is a relaxed walk and Mat will adjust to the group's interests on the day to make it as personal to everyone as he can. Please wear sturdy shoes or wellies. Each excursion is dependent on what's in season, what wild foods are available and, of course, the weather.

Please note, for safety reasons and that we discuss making wines and spirits we do not accept children under 12 on this course.
