FORAGING

Foraging with Totally Wild UK & Cracking Good Food

Immerse yourself in the world of wild edibles with expert-led foraging experiences. Cracking Good Food has partnered with Totally Wild UK to bring you guided forage walks in Greater Manchester, where you will learn to safely identify wildly growing edible plants, berries and mushrooms.

Totally Wild UK are a professional team of expert foragers working across the UK with a mission to make foraging as accessible to as many people as possible.

These forages are suitable for the whole family and – whether you’re a beginner or want to deepen your knowledge – provide a great chance to spend time with loved ones, connect with nature and learn some cracking new skills – food doesn’t get more seasonal than this!

Includes:

  • The basics of foraging, best practices and an introduction to Totally Wild.
  • 3 hour walk discovering wild foods from flowers to fruits, fungi & tubers according to the season.
  • Tips on harvesting, correct identification and possible look-alikes as well as a huge range of cooking ideas.
  • The opportunity to taste a range of pre-made wild food tasters from syrups, flavoured salts and alcohol infusions.
  • Post forage email detailing everything you found on the day, along with some tips on harvesting and how to use wild food in everyday life.

And the opportunity to make a difference with 30% of each ticket sale going directly to Cracking Good Food to support our work to alleviate hunger and increase food security around Greater Manchester.

Tickets are £40.00, children are welcome and under the age of 12 may attend for FREE, with one child attending per ticketed adult. (Please make sure to add a note to your order at checkout if you would like to bring a child.)
