One Day Foraging Workshop with Richard Mawby 

With the success of the workshop held in spring and another over summer, we plan to hold more foraging workshops soon! Please email us to register your interest for future workshops.

Wander through the vineyard as Richard points out all the edible plants which could make a healthy addition to your diet. You’ll be encouraged to enjoy the pure and natural flavours of freshly harvested plants as Richard introduces unique flavours you can weave into your meals. By the end of the session, you should be able to confidently identify several edible wild plants and will go home with lots of ideas to try in your own kitchen.

Based in Northampton, Richard follows a primal ideal, reconnecting with nature and thriving on locally sourced wild animal products, foraged plants and raw goat’s milk. He explains: “Foraging is a great way to re-learn the connection we once had with the wild, to be at one with your surroundings, experience nature and to re-tune with your instincts. This workshop is a practical, hands-on approach to dining from nature’s pantry and the vineyard couldn’t be a more perfect location.”

    I attended this course with no idea about foraging or what to expect. It was great fun and very informative. Richard has so much knowledge about living off of the land.
    I was kept well informed a week before hand about what to take on the day and directions etc… It was very well organised.
