Foraging for Edible and Medicinal Plants

16 May at 12:00 pm until 3:00 pm

£27.50 pp.

Springtime walks will never be the same again if you come along to our foraging day with Fred Gillam (aka Fred the Forager) He’s been foraging for his supper for more than 30 years and will show you exactly what you can safely pick, what to avoid, how to prepare your harvest, and most importantly how to make sure this is all done sustainably so that other creatures also get their fair share! Fred is a herbalist as well as a forager, and has been running a small community dispensary with his partner in Wiltshire for a number of years. A surprising number of our native plants provide useful ingredients for herbal remedies such as tinctures, teas and balms, and Fred will discuss both this, and their edible qualities. Fred has made appearances with the BBC’s Jeremy Vine and on ITV’s Countrywise, foresting and cheffing in the woods with Gino D’Campo. His courses also come recommended in the BBC’S Countryfile Magazine. Bring a packed lunch, a camera and a notepad!
