Join us for a fascinating and enjoyable lunchtime learning all about our local wild foods. September is a great time of the year to get out the basket and harvest some of nature’s most delicious ingredients including fungi, fruit and nuts, many of which are abundant at this time of year. You will learn the importance of sustainability, the do’s and don’ts of foraging in the wild and all the confidence of our experienced and knowledgeable instructors. Depending on what we find we shall also enjoy a wee wild feast under the canopy of our local native woodland.
