Reconnection to Nature Courses at the Incredible Aquagarden

1st Apr 17, Sara Venn
Over the spring period the Incredible Aquagarden in Todmorden are running a series of courses that will help you to reconnect with nature.



Wild plants for skin and hair

We are starting with a fantastic workshop run by Rose Bax from Taste the Wild (, where Rose will introduce you to the array of wild plants to nurture your hair and skin. You will make natural skin and hair products using wild flowers, leaves and roots. The day will be a mixture of demonstrations by Rose and plenty of hands-on experience. You’ll have all your products to take home and the skills to make more.

Places are limited to 8 people


Build an Earth Oven

At the end of April, together with Chris Bax from Taste the Wild we will build an Earth Oven, in which we will be cooking over the summer. This course will teach you how to build a small cob oven from scratch. During the day we will look at all aspects of oven building from selecting your raw materials and mixing your cob through to the first firing. The course is a hands on experience and we will construct an oven together on the day so you can see and experience the different processes in action.

Places are limited to 10 people


Create a Kitchen Garden

May is the perfect time to think about what edibles we can grow in our gardens and how can we add extra flavour and nutrition to our cooking. This workshop explores all aspects of creating a kitchen garden, from seed to harvesting and cooking. You will develop life long skills to enable you to produce delicious meals for the whole family with home grown produce. No matter what size your growing space is, we will help you to understand how to make the most of it.

Places are limited to 10 people


Wild Food Foraging

This day will be all about what extra treats we can get from nature to funk up our meals. Led by the experienced team from Taste the Wild, who have been running foraging courses for many years, we will take you for a walk through Todmorden to explore, recognise and pick edible plants which often occur in the wild. Depending on the season we may be tapping trees for sap, gathering wild herbs or picking edible fungi, but no matter what we find you will learn how to prepare and transform foraged foods into great dishes, preserves and drinks.

Places are limited to 10 people


Field to Fork

Learn how to create delicious meals for family and friends which will add the wow factor to vegetarian cooking. This workshop will challenge the view that fine dining can only be achieved in high end restaurants. Turn your dinner party into a gastronomical experience, using freshly harvested, local, organic produce and learn how to make the most of home grown ingredients. We will demonstrate a selection of menus with unusual ingredients, which will taste great and inspire your cooking.

Places limited to 10 people
