Blenheim Palace Summer Foraging Courses

These courses will take place around the Long Hanborough side of Blenheim Palace's vast grounds. This stunning 18th century baroque palace is within easy reach of Oxford, Banbury, Burford, Aylesbury and even Newbury. We expect to find plenty of foraging treats from all the well established flora here.

The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.

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

There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.

After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.

After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt. There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
