Event Details

Discover the delicious and deadly in this fantastic introduction to foraging. This course will cover ID skills and important features to look out for in common plants, the historical and modern uses of the species we encounter, and, most importantly, how to stay safe while foraging!

The course will take place over 3-4 hours; please bring water with you and have a hearty breakfast! There will be some light snacks provided as we recap what we’ve learned, but nothing substantial, so perhaps bring lunch too.

This walk will take place along the maintained paths of Dalkeith Country Park and Estate, some of which are fairly steep and can be precarious in wet weather. Please be advised that a basic level of mobility is required, and sturdy footwear is recommended.

Dalkeith Park offers plenty of other activities and has a café which provide refreshment. There are on site toilet.

Dalkeith Park is only 20 mins away from Edinburgh.

Foraging Courses Leader at Coeur Sauvage

Sam is the natural bard of the company. He joined in 2021. Sam was a bartender and competitive mixologist in Scotland’s exciting gastronomical and cocktail world; the Coronavirus pandemic allowed him to assess hospitality’s impact on his health and well-being. He had taken great solace in the quiet of the forests in contrast to the chaos of the bar and found inspiration in the new flavours he was discovering and so, when the opportunity to join forces with Coeur Sauvage, Sam jumped at the chance. 

Sam is a determined fungiphage, and well on his way to having identify and eaten 100 species of fungi. The child of two educators and with previous experience running whisky and gin tasting sessions, Sam is more than ready to share his experiences in the field of foraging.
