Event description
A multi sensorial introduction to the wonderful world of foraging

About this Event

This 3 hour course will introduce you to the opportunities and challenges of foraging for wild food in the city. We will begin with an introduction to the principles of safe and sustainable foraging, and the basics of plant identification. On the walk we will cover around 20 different species and discuss how to harvest and prepare them for a range of different drinks and dishes. We will discuss the history, folklore and politics of foraging.

The course will finish with herbal tea and a foraged snack, with plenty of time for further discussion. A summary list of the plants covered and plant family identification will be emailed after the course.

Hopefully going for a walk will never be the same again as your eyes are opened to the diversity of plant life that surrounds us everywhere we go.
