Learn about the wild food and medicine available in abundance at this time.
Wild spring greens have been part of the diet of our ancestors for thousands of years and we will learn some of their traditional and modern uses as well as how we can gain benefit from incorporating them into our lives.
On this day we will walk the land and gather some of the spring plants we find for making tea, food and medicine around the fire in the afternoon. You might take home a herbal vinegar or syrup, feast on wild pesto and salad and pick up some fire by friction tips.
On the day, follow signs to reception upon arrival and we will meet by the main campsite barn. Please bring a pack lunch which can be ideally shared with others, this brings such a treat to the day when food is shared. We can top up our lunch with some foraged goods too and will be nibbling away all afternoon on the foraged delights we’ve made. A selection of tea’s and hot water will be provided and of-course we will make some fresh herb brews along the way.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to meet & greet. Please bring suitable footwear for walking on farmland, warm clothes (even if it is sunny) and wet weather gear just in case. Please bring a notepad and pen, maybe a camera to help you remember the plants, and a baskets for foraged goods.
No previous experience needed for any of these workshops.
No dogs allowed please.
