Mushroom Foraging and Sloe Gin Making Experience
Join Boots on Adventures and local forager, Dan Pigden, for a mushroom foraging and sloe gin making experience.
- 16 Oct 2022
Join the tribe on the 16th October where we will be teaming up with our good friend Dan Pigden. Dan is a thoroughly engaging local forager with years of experience who will be taking us around the local woodland showing us what to look out for, what is edible and what is poisonous.
During your experience he will be talking through some of the ways he uses to identify flora, fauna, and mushrooms as well as how to prepare them ready for the pot!
In addition, we will be learning how to flavour the perfect spirit ready for Christmas with a selection natural ingredients for you to take home – Just bring a bottle of your favourite tipple with you and we will supply the rest!
Where will we be meeting?
We will be meeting in the Village Hall Car Park at Boughton-Under-Blean at 10am and making our way from there to a lovely woodland area. On route we will be picking Sloe’s ready for the Gin. We expect the day to finish at around 3 pm.
What Shall I Bring?
- Suitable warm Clothing and strong shoes
- Drinking water and packed lunch
- A bottle of your favourite tipple to flavour – we suggest a cheap bottle of Vodka is best
