Foraging for Edible and Medicinal Plants

9 June at 12:00 pm until 3:00 pm



Please email if you would like to be added to the reserve list.

Walks at this beautiful time of the year will never be the same again if you come along to our Foraging day with Fred Gillam (aka Fred The Forager). Fred has been foraging for his supper for over 3 decades 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 that all of this is done sustainably so that other creatures will 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 this, along with their edible qualities.

Fred has made recent appearances with BBC’s Jeremy Vine and on ITV Countrywise foraging and cheffing in the woods with Gino D’Acampo. His foraging courses also come recommended in BBC Countryfile Magazine in the UK Top 10.

Bring a packed lunch, a camera and a notepad!
