Foraging is for anyone who loves nature and is excited and inquisitive about food (and where it comes from)

This page is where you’ll find all the latest information on the courses and events we will be running. Don’t forget that if you don’t see your ideal foraging experience on this page, just send a quick email and we can see what we can do.

Regular Events

Half-day courses: These go from The Angel Hotel, Abergavenny, and run on the last Sunday of the month, from March to October. We meet outside the main door of the Hotel at 10am for a 10.15 start.

Cost is £35.00 per person, payable in advance, children go free (one free child per paying adult although I’m flexible about this)

Weekday courses (and some weekend courses) ‘on demand’, from 4 people upwards.

We meet near Brecon and the price is £40.00 per adult with children free (one free child per paying adult preferred although I’m flexible about this).

Bespoke foraging experiences

I can offer bespoke foraging sessions. Whether you’re on holiday and would like a forage from your base or you just want to know what you can find in your local surroundings, I can help. The pricing will depend on numbers, mileage and how long you’d like the experience to be. To arrange just send me an email (details below) and we can plan your perfect forage together.

Botanical Gin Foraging

This is a very popular and brilliantly fun way to learn about plants, especially if you have a group activity in mind for a special occasion!

In an event that lasts about 3 hours, I take you on a forage (usually from where you are staying) to find ingredients that can be used as a flavour or garnish, then we come back to base to play with an intriguing array of botanical herbs and tinctures. I also include a cocktail made using wild ingredients to get you into the swing of things (non-alcoholic cocktails are not a problem).

You get to take home a 300ml jar of your own unique blend.

Prices start at £50 per person, plus petrol if you’re more than 10 miles away.

How to book

Booking is super easy just email with which course you’re interested in and I will respond with all the details and an invoice with details on how to make the payment.

All courses must be paid for in advance.
