Event description

Description

Pick a truly fresh salad from wild plants (aka weeds) growing in Finsbury Park. We’ll discover over 20 edible plants, tasting as we go and learning about their uses. Then enjoy the results of your foraging by eating a mouth-watering communal salad and sipping tea in the beautiful surroundings of Edible Landscapes London. Our April 2019 course featured in the Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/keep-life-simples/2019/jun/07/the-modern-hunter-gatherer-how-i-tracked-down-a-new-credit-card-and-foraged-for-dinner

Trainer - Michael Stuart

Michael is an urban forager from Kilburn in NW London. He got into foraging in his 50s after starting a project harvesting apples from back gardens and meeting other foragers. He enjoys knowing he can almost always find something to eat within 10 metres; thinking about how our ancestors evolved but we can’t survive in nature, the relaxation that comes with foraging as well as getting something for free.

note: the walk will start at the main park gates off Seven Sisters road and finish at Edible Landscapes. (Meeting at the Seven Sisters road entrance, opposite Finsbury Park road on Seven Sisters Road, closest station is Finsbury Park)

If you have any mobility requirements, please contact capitalgrowth@sustainweb.org before booking to discuss your particular needs.
