Coeur Sauvage are thrilled to invite you to Kelburn Estate, ancestral home of the Earl of Glasgow, for a deep delve into the plant life, history and art rooted in the soils of this ancient glen.
Kelburn Estate is well-known for its ornamental gardens and grandiose trees, but what treasures lurk beneath the canopies? Join Sam, our course leader, as we take a magnifying glass to the undergrowth and discover a whole world of edible plants you never knew existed!
This course is a perfect introduction to the world of foraging, designed to encourage you to get out there and learn more!
Featuring a two-to-three hour, leisurely walk along well-trodden paths and a skills-based identification session, we hope to inspire, in you, a passion to learn and teach you the techniques to do it safely.
Although the paths are well-maintained, we recommend you wear sturdy footwear and clothes you don’t mind getting a little mucky!
Kelburn Estate is fully stocked with amenities; a cafe offering hot drinks, food stand offering hot food, toilets and much more. We will be delivering a small tasting platter of wild preserves and cold, cooked food, so will need dietary requirements when you order your ticket!
We ask you to please bring a small cup (no glass or ceramic please), some cutlery and a pen & paper. We’ve got disposables if needed but reusables are better!
Tickets are £35 per person over 12. Children accompanied by a guardian are free of charge, but we must stress that our courses are not designed with children in mind at this stage and they must remain under supervision at all times!
Pets are however incompatible with the slow pace of the foraging walk. We are sorry, we love dogs, but regrettably they are not allowed on the courses.
Car parking is charged by the venue at £5. This goes towards helping maintain this beautiful place.
The courses offer the opportunity to sample wild food although bring a pack lunch and drinking water. Alternatively, you can take advantage the “Kelburn Courtyard Café”.
