Nature provides all that we need. At this time of year we need the energy provided by the nuts and seeds to help us through the winter, and the medicine and vitamins of the berries to keep us strong and resilient in the cold times ahead. On this day we will gather and  process some of our wild berries and nuts. Learning how to confidently identify them and how we might use them safely and with great benefit. We will use some ancient cooking techniques and make a berry medicine you can take home.

On this day we will learn the important and precious knowledge of how to process acorn. We will create delicious and nourishing food including acorn flour and share simple recipes that can inspire you to try this at home or with groups of all ages in the forest.

The Oak is a well loved and respected tree of this land. It has been called the 'King of the Woods' and in the essence of true kingship, this tree supports, shelters and nourishes more variety of life in the ecology of Britain than any other.

Some say that an old oak may support over a thousand species from the tiniest insects, fungi, lichen and mosses to birds and mammals large and small. Oak provides shelter and has been an important timber in human buildings for many generations. The advent of farming created many huge changes in peoples relationship to the land, one of the least known and yet significant, was that once people who once processed and ate acorn, then turned to grain as their staple.
