Spring Feast and Forage

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

£35.00 – £55.00

Spend a relaxing day in the woods enjoying good food and company around the fire.

We will spend some time talking about foraging and more historical methods of cooking and food production, then concentrating on the more easily identifiable and readily available plants we will collect some out in the woods before returning to the round house to create a fresh lunch cooked over the fire.

Expect to make fresh butter and cheese flavoured with the plants we find along with a selection of other
things such as drop scones, a fresh salad and maybe a herbal tonic all put together to create a light
lunch to enjoy.

Who knows there may even be some acorn coffee to try for those who enjoy a hot brew.


Knowledge required: Perfect for beginners!

Group size 12 maximum.

Minimum age: We think this event is best suited to those 12+.

Other information:
This event takes place in a stunningly tranquil, but basic, woodland venue. Our handcrafted Roundhouse offers shelter from the elements with rustic furniture around a crackling wood fire, whilst nearby you’ll find a compost loo and rainwater sink. Hot beverages will be provided on this otherwise non-catered evening, but please bring your own drinking water. As there is no running water or electricity at the arboretum this is a back to basics, almost off grid experience.

Tortworth Forest Centre is a Community Interest Company, working with limited resources. Sometimes we may have to cancel or postpone courses if they are less than 50% subscribed. We try our hardest to keep courses running wherever possible. You can help us by spreading the word to friends, family and colleagues. If an event is cancelled a full refund will be offered.

Planning your visit:
Due to the natural pathways the site is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with mobility issues
With this in mind most pathways can be slippery and muddy at times. Please wear appropriate footwear
Please find detailed information about how to find us, and more information to help you plan your visits here
