There’s so much going on in Wiltshire this summer, we can’t wait to get out and about and visit...
Back in ancient times, people had to hunt in the wild for their dinner, but it’s a skill that has almost died out over time. However, foraging is undergoing a revival and those staying in New Forest cottages have the chance to learn how to find food right here in the wild British countryside.
The Countryside Education Trust is holding a fun and educational event on 5th August from 10am-5pm which allows nature lovers to scour the New Forest for edible goodies which they will later cook and eat!
After a 2-hour walk through the beautiful forest, in which visitors will be shown what foods are tasty and safe to eat, there will be a campfire to relax around whilst a professional chef will create a menu of 8-10 delicious dishes using the foraged treats. As well as finding edible food there will also be an opportunity to make teas and other herbal remedies from the natural surroundings.
For a day of fascinating, delicious fun, tickets are £25 per person and should be booked in advance on 01590 612401.
