Summer foraging course near Matlock, Derbyshire

Hope Valley foraging

Summer Foraging 

Our next foraging course at Woven Earth will take place on Saturday 1st July 2023 starting at 10am. The venue is High Leas Farm at Riber near Matlock in Derbyshire. 

The farm has a great diversity of wild plants and trees, together with established hedgerows and grassland.  It employs “Holistic Restoration to weave Regenerative Production, Wilding and Nature Connection together for the benefit of people and ecosystems.” For more details visit 

As a medical herbalist I’ll be showing you which plants can be used therapeutically and for what conditions. As a forager I’ll be encouraging you to discover the plants that taste good and suggesting recipes we can use them in. 

Everything happens at a leisurely pace, we don’t cover a great deal of ground as there’s always so much to look at right under our feet. There’s also plenty of opportunities to ask questions, share some of your own knowledge or just to stop and stare. 

We return to the barn after our walk and share a herbal tea and some pre prepared foraged snacks. 

The treats in store this time will be: 

Wild Majoram and Nettle Scones 

Meadowsweet fudge 

The session will last approximately 3 hours. The cost is £40 per person.  There are concessions available for those on low income or who are retired.  If you’d like to book a place, would like more information or have any queries please don’t hesitate to email me on or give me a call on 07432 195574

Hope to see you there! 🍃 🌸
