Uncover gourmet delights with wild foraging

Alnwick, Northumberland

Learn how to find, identify and prepare the wild plants and produce that Northumberland has to offer with a foraging workshop or walk.

For those who like to get active, foraging for mushrooms is a great autumn activity.

Join an expert on a 4 mile walk through Allen Banks and Staward Gorge to discover the variety of shapes, colours and textures of fungi ‘fruit’ littered throughout the woodland. Experience the Northumberland countryside in a unique way through a foraging workshop with Northern Wilds and learn how to prepare and preserve some of nature’s seasonal offerings. Discover how to make a wild food feast with their cooking courses or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, discover how to take wild game from field to table.

Explore the Northumberland countryside and learn about the seasonal wild foods that can be found and enjoyed.
