Go Wild with bushtucker trial

Fun-loving groups will have a blast on our unique ‘Go Wild’ activity.

“The Go Wild activity was wonderful, I can see why this is a firm favourite.”

Take a leisurely pace, or go for it with a challenging team-building and competitive style. Go Wild normally involves 3 elements – a short wild food foray & bush tucker trial, a fire-lighting challenge and a bush-bow archery competition. 

Discover some of the wild food that you can eat, and collect wild food for your bush tucker trial such as nettles, sorrel and jelly ear fungus! You can blindfold the bride-to-be or birthday boy for the finale which usually involves screaming, squirming & hysterical laughter!

During the fire-lighting challenge make fire without matches, the aim here is for everyone to achieve a flaming bundle of hay, which is quite an experience, a great photo opportunity, and a bit harder than Bear Grylls makes it look! You’ll also use a bush bow for a short, fun archery competition and games.

On your foray you will learn about the different wild and kitchen garden botanicals in season, what flavours, aromas and characteristics they have, and which plants go with which spirits.

Back at base, you’ll make & label your own wild booze to take home.

Wild Food Foray

From luscious wild garlic in the spring to fabulous fungi in the autumn, learn how to find abundance in every season with expert forager, Adrian Boots. There’s always plenty to find in nature’s larder, if you know what to look for!

Rather than just teaching a list of wild foods, Adrian enjoys helping people understand the connections between habitat and species so that they develop a more holistic understanding of wild food within the context of the landscape, and our fundamental relationship with food and the natural world.

Forays can be booked as a private activity but we also run a programme of open events, please enquire for dates.

Typically we run the activity for groups for 2 hours, and for open events for 4 hours. Longer forays usually include lunch.
