Cerney House Gardens is one of The Cotswolds' hidden gems. It offers a Victorian walled garden and mature woodland, among its delights. Located at North Cerney, north of Cirencester,  the gardens can be explored before or after this foraging course as admission is included. And, the ornamental planting gives an opportunity to discover some edible ornamentals as well as wild plants and mushrooms. 

This foraging course walk venue is easy to get to from Cirencester, Cheltenham, Swindon, Gloucester, Oxford, and Stow-on-the-Wold, with Bristol under one-hour away. ​

The course includes: 
- an overview of foraging laws and safety best practice 
- explaining sustainable and mindful practice
- exploration of the venue introduction to a number of edible species

We cannot guarantee what species will be growing on any given course date - this is the nature of foraging. As a rough guide, springtime and summer courses should be predominantly plant focused, with mushrooms sometimes found. Summer courses may also have fruits and flowers to learn about, with some mushrooms. Autumn courses should be more mushroom-focused than spring or summer courses but this is dependant on weather conditions preceding the course.

We do not harvest on this course. Any picking is for identification purposes only.
