The course starts with a 20 minute introduction then we will set off for a slow walk around the area taking in some woods, hedgerows and fields identifying what we find. We’ll stop along the way for some tasty wild food treats and refreshments.
After a 2 to 3 hour walk the area and surrounding woods we will go back to the Fountaine Inn to discuss and hopefully taste our finds.

Stories Under the Stars - from the marshlands of England, across the prairies of America, to the sky above us all, this performance shares the stories of those who have followed the stars - from sky-maidens looking for love to runaway slaves searching for freedom - the stories celebrate those who follow a dream to dare their future. These tales, both wickedly funny and heartbreakingly poignant, will not fail to amuse and to move you.
The performance has toured venues across USA and Canada, to great acclaim.This event, will be the premiere performance in the UK and will take place in the barn at Lower Winskill Farm near Langcliffe, Settle. This is one of the most stunning locations in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
