Just to say thanks for the course on sat, really enjoyed it and thought you were a great bunch of inspiring characters, really enjoyed meeting the other participants too – you guys are definitely onto a good thing and once I get a group of us together we’ll come and do full weekend course survival style!

If you fancy a great weekend away I cant recommend this enough Nick and Ash were great hosts and you can tailor the course to your wants/needs. It is quite possibly the most, fun and insightful weekend I have ever had.

Check course availability and book!

The HGC team have developed a different spin on the blossoming bushcraft experiences out there – more Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall than Ray Mears. Setting their courses in an amazing field kitchen and showing you not only what to look for when foraging but how to prepare and cook it to make truly delicious food. I was blown away by freshly made venison burgers, loin fillet of rabbit in sorrel salsa verde and bush cocktails. Get it whilst it’s hot!

I was blown away by freshly made venison burgers

It was an amazing experience. We learned loads and made some really scrummy dishes. Nick was an excellent course leader who really knew his stuff. He gave us demonstrations on how to butcher the rabbit, ponass the fish etc, then let us get on with it, and was always on hand to guide us if necessary. We came away with a whole bunch of recipes, including some for wild brewing. Kinda tempted to try making marrow rum!

Many thanks to you and the team for a brilliant day yesterday Nick. A lovely relaxed atmosphere with sound people and Jon is an excellent Foray partner! I will be back for more next year I hope.
Clare Renton, London – Fungal Foray & Feast

Out here, alone – save for a solitary lamp shining out into the wood and the occasional crackle of the dwindling fire – he’s in his element. It all has the discreet charm of a boyhood dream realised.
