Cardiff Autumn Foraging Course

This beautiful city centre park is surprisingly plentiful in wild plant, flower and mushrooms species throughout the year.
We will meet at the Castle Street entrance to the park outside the Pettigrew Tearooms at 12pm. The course starts there with a 20 minute introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes where they relate to foragers.
We’ll then set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the park and along the beautiful riverside, stopping to talk about the different edible and poisonous plants, fruits and mushrooms that we come across.
We will stop along the way for some lovely homemade refreshments such as our wild mushroom soup or even some elderflower champagne.
We will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some tasty treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad we’ll pick on the day and a mushroom dish that we’ll cook in front of you.
We will email all of you details of all the plants and mushrooms we find to help you to remember what you have learnt.

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