This course will give you the skills and confidence to safely gather and transform your hedgerow bounty into delicious storable wild food products, across the seasons.

You will develop the confidence to safely identify seasonal wild plants, where to find them and how to prepare a range of products with techniques including; lacto-fermentation, infused vinegars, superfood powders, dehydration techniques, syrups, oxymels and elixirs.

You will learn about plant history, folklore and nutritional qualities with sensory and intuitive techniques to uncover the hidden depths of wild plants.

In each session we will meet and gather wild edible plants before getting hands on making one or two wild food products, working with different techniques each time and preparing products to take home and share.

Weather permitting we will be under the trees and around the fire for at least one session.

Visiting Dartington Hall

At our 1,200 acre estate, based in South Devon, there’s plenty to explore – from the natural beauty of the grounds, to our visitor attractions and year-round events programme. You can also make a stay of it with our historic hotel or campsite, and enjoy award-winning food and drink in our cafes and restaurants.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
