9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Learn to identify and forage for food and resources in our natural surroundings. Take a stroll through a park or woodland and embark on a completely different feel that makes every plant and tree jump out. Gain a greater understanding of what is growing around us seasonally, collect, process, prepare and then cook food dishes with these natural ingredients. Embers Bushcraft can give you the skills to take home and use again and again and may inspire your own cooking.
The six week programme is focused on seasonal plants and trees in various settings to provide varied day’s that will teach you to identify simple plants and learn to incorporate them into your own cooking. With additional cooking techniques taught throughout the day you will leave the course with a richer understanding of what is growing around you and how to use it in your daily lives.
Through a woodland-based concept, you will also access a wide variety of skill sets and learning such as:
- Woodland Foraging
- Coastal discovery
- Back Country cooking
- Shelter design
- Water location and preparation
