A half-day workshop within the Stoke Park Estate learning, identifying, sampling or utilising the useful and edible plants found in the park

Join Steve England on a half-day workshop within the beautiful Stoke Park Estate, for a course covering both Wild Foods and Practical Plants, learning, identifying, foraging and utilsing the plants, trees and edibles available within and around the park in the summer.

Learn how to identify the plants to taste and which to avoid and discover the wild foods from grasslands, woodland and hedgerows. Learn the species suitable for woodcraft and fire and get hands-on with materials we find. Learn to identify edible trees such as lime and useful trees such as willow.

Cancellation/Postponing due to Poor Weather

SE Outdoor Learning events take place outdoors, and therefore unfortunately we may need to be postponed or cancelled in the days leading up to the event if it seems that the weather will be too poor for it to be run safely. We will always aim to confirm cancellation of the event 24 – 48 hours in advance (though on very rare occassions, sudden weather changes may mean its closer than this). Please keep an eye on your emails and Facebook for information regarding this. If you cannot make the postponed date, please request a refund and we will be able to issue this for you asap
