Foraging Course Level 3 – NCFE Accredited

Our foraging course focuses on more than just wild edibles. Whilst on the level 3 foraging course you will delve deeper in to what can be found in a woodland environment. You will learn what plants can be eaten, what can be used for medicinal purposes and what can be used for bushcraft reasons.

Foraging skills are fundamental to bushcraft and our foraging course will open eyes to the resources available when you are on your wilderness travels.

The foraging course covers;

Wild edibles.

Practical uses for trees and plants.

Medicinal plants.

Foraging Law in the UK.

Foraging best practice.

Tree and plant folk law.

Toxic and poisonous species.

Foraging publications.

On the foraging level 3 you will spend time gathering items to try, we will be making teas using plants you find in the woods and you will have the ability to add wild foods to your own meals. Whilst you are on the course our instructors will be cooking up some tasty treats for you to try. We have to work with the seasons so the types of wild foods will depend on when you attend the level 3 foraging course. The course in the spring will focus more on fresh spring greens and roots. The course in the autumn will we be exploring fruits, nuts and starchy carbs.

On successful competition of the course you will be awarded the Wildway Bushcraft Foraging Level 3 – NCFE Accredited qualification which will prove you have a good base knowledge of woodland foraging.

This course follows on from where the Foundation in Bushcraft and Wilderness living skills Level 2 – NCFE Accredited left off. To make the most of this course attending the level 2 or a basic foraging course is recommend. However personal knowledge is also excepted, so if you’re not sure if this is the course for you, just ask.

The course is self catered. You will be camping in the woods and be able to enjoy the campfire in the evening if you wish. Tea, Coffee and Cake will be provided.

Our qualification has been developed to meet the specific needs of our learners and has been accredited by NCFE demonstrating the quality and rigor.
