About the event
Join Leanne Townsend of Wild Food Stories on an early foraging walk in the Alford area. Learn how to safely identify a diverse range of wild plants growing on your doorstep. On this gentle walk around the Alford countryside, you will learn the main principles of foraging, including safety, sustainability and ethics. Add a number of wild plants to your repertoire and learn about the numerous ways that wild food can be incorporated into your diet and prepared in nutritious and delicious recipes. Suitable for all ages (babes in arms free, everyone else must be in possession of a ticket). Please wear sensible footwear and weather appropriate clothing; consider brining a basket or canvas bag for foraging (though we tend not to forage large harvests on these events), a camera (or camera phone), and a notebook if you wish to take notes on the walk. Finish the walk with a wildcrafted homebake* and a refreshing wildcrafted (non alcoholic) drink, and a talk with Leanne about how to prepare and preserve wild ingredients in a number of different ways.
* dietary requirements can be met in most cases but only where booking has occurred a week or more ahead of the event. This is due to availability of specialist ingredients where I live etc.
