Noticeboard

Martin Bailey of www.goforaging.co.uk will lead a weekend of walking, foraging and cooking. Step back in time as we spend the weekend foraging, feasting and quaffing fine wild cocktails in the exquisite surroundings of the quintessentially English country house at Monkton Wyld Court. Together we will explore nearby coastal habitats abundant with seasonal wild vegetables. From our base, we will adventure around the grounds and beyond picking wild shoots, leaves and flowers then transforming them into scrumptious meals and delicious drinks. Co-hosting this weekend will be wild booze extraordinaire, author and teacher Andy Hamilton. The cost of the weekend includes accommodation, vegetarian meals and drinks, plus morning and afternoon foraging walks. There will also be the opportunity to create your own wild salads, pickles, kimchi and cocktails from the ingredients we forage! Come away with a renewed sense of wonder and a heightened appreciation of the edible and drinkable landscape.
