winter foraging and wild food walk in north wales

Walk the wild food trail & discover foraging

Explore wild plants that you can eat in your local patch. Join us for a guided walk through a range of landscapes on the hunt for the best wild foods that winter has to offer. Gain confidence in foraging and learn how to use these wild plants in your own cooking. We might just be lucky enough to see the sugary sap flowing from the birch trees too.

You may think there’s nothing tasty to be had during the cold, winter months, but if you know where to look there are still treats to be found. Edible wild plants and fungi are often viewed with suspicion and thought to be bitter or tasteless, only to be eaten as a last resort. But to the forager, our woodlands and hedgerows are full of tasty and filling wild food opportunities.

You’ll be taking a half day ramble along the hedgerows on the hunt for “food for free” all set against the backdrop of mixed woodlands, wetlands and open meadows of Park In The Past, with 120 acres of wild space to explore in search of “food for free.”

  • Take a guided foraging walk through the woods, parkland and meadows
  • Gain confidence in identifying a variety of edible plants including winter greens, fungi and roots
  • See a demonstration of tapping birch trees for syrup
  • Discover medicinal uses for seasonal wild plants
  • Enjoy a wild tea taster
  • Learn how to forage with a sustainable approach to the habitat
  • Understand the law and your rights when foraging

Your Tutor: James Kendall

James is the Head Bushcraft Instructor at Woodland Classroom, having worked in outdoor education & conservation for over 10 years. James’ approach to teaching steers students toward fostering a deeper connection with nature through understanding the landscape around us; “Bushcraft skills are an effective way to do this as we learn how to make use of natural materials and live lightly with the land, whilst also connecting with our own ancient past by seeing the land through the eyes of our ancestors.”

In 2017 James received the Bushcraft Competency Certificate awarded through the Institute for Outdoor Learning after 2 years of teaching experience and practical study. He is also a member of the IOL Bushcraft Professional Practise Group. The group aims to promote best practice in the growing industry of bushcraft activity providers.
