How to identify, prepare and use wild plants.. An exploration of foraging UK edible wild plants, from identification in the field, to preparation for the table. Daily fun and informative foraging walks and cookery workshops that unearth the forgotten flavours of the hedgerow
Participants will learn:
Basic plant identification using the easy-to-remembner ‘plant patterns’ method.
Increased confidence in plant I/D.
Cookery ideas using our common edible species.
Knowledge and experience in harvesting and preparing wild foods
I have run workshops many times at festivals. The ethos fits perfectly to my off grid lifestyle and teachings about using our wild plants. Each foraging walk and workshop is different except in the feelings of having sown seeds of greater resilience in the attendees. With my foraging card games I can entertain kids as well as adults, putting lots of fun into learning about foraging.
I am a graduate in medicinal horticulture which has developed into a wild foods educator over the past 8 years. I have recently created a growing foraging resource online at https://www.wildplantguide.com
