May foraging Course 18th & 19th May


Join Rupert on an expedition along the East Lothian coastline and discover how to identify and harvest the very best in wild herbs, spring flowers and greens from the forests and hedgerows around East Lothian.

Spring is a fantastic time of year for foraging, the woodlands bursting with fresh shoots and greenery that are fantastically versatile and easy to prepare, so come along and discover the possibilities for yourself.

Guests will also enjoy a selection of wild foraged snacks and drinks throughout.

Meeting Place: The exact location will be emailed to ticket holders during the week before the event – but you should plan to be near Musselburgh in East Lothian.

Expect: About 1.5 miles of gentle walking over mixed forest terrain. Suitable for all those with moderate fitness.

Bring: Wellies and layers of clothing to accommodate changing weather.

Please be aware that all cancellations less than 48 hours before the event are non- refundable or transferable.
