learn food foraging skills near our hotel in Fowey, Cornwall

Summer is often the chance for Cornish summers to shine, and over the holidays some of the gardens close to our hotel in Fowey, Cornwall, are offering any green-fingered visitors the chance to learn a bit more on how the gardens are kept, as well as food foraging workshops.

Tomorrow on August 9, the Eden Project has a number of workshops throughout the day about foraging for wild food. Eden's own expert forager will be leading the workshop, and there is also a chance to have a foray into the wider Eden grounds to seek out nature's edible profusion.

Later in August, a Wild Food Walk at the Lost Gardens of Heligan will be held on Saturday 14. The gardens and estate have over 200 acres to explore, and the expensive gardens have tonnes of plants for foraging. On the Sunday, you can join wild food forager Emma Gunn and explore the wild side of the estate. Learn how to identify wild plants for their culinary and other uses and learn the fascinating history.

The tips you learn for gardening and wild food foraging can be brought away and used at home. Food foraging is becoming a great way for people to learn more about the foods they eat, and also find delicious organic food out and about.

At The Cormorant Hotel, all the food we serve in the restaurant is locally sourced, and some food like the wild garlic is foraged by our chefs from the area around our hotel.
