Tapping into a lifetime love for the outdoors, centuries-old tacit knowledge handed down through my family, and years of my own research and experimentation, I will guide you on a foraging journey that reveals the hidden potential in even the most familiar of wild plants, those plants that surround you, the ones you walk past every day whether you live in the countryside, town or city.
Join me to explore the fields and ditches of the townland area as I introduce you to the wonderful world of wild edibles and simple but powerful folk medicinals.
The entire experience should last around 3 hours. We'll meet in my farmyard for a 10.30 am start – there is a good-sized carpark but please carpool where possible while remaining covid safe. I will take you through my garden a short distance to visit a 200-year-old half -door stone cottage. At the cottage, I'll give a brief introduction to the art of foraging – ethics, law, safety, sustainability, etc. We begin our approximate 2-hour foraging walk of field and hedgerow.
The plants, fungi, berries that we may meet and discuss are seasonally dependent, each season has its blessings. We'll be eating some tasty wild foraged treats that I have prepared -small nibbles 'on the hoof' as we walk. Return to the stone cottage for a brief look at processing and preservation techniques. We're finished up at about 1.30 pm
What do I need to bring?
Good strong footwear, wellies if you want ( the grass may be long and wet in places so please dress accordingly)
Waterproofs – a good raincoat or umbrella
Warm clothing – we won't be walking very fast or far and obviously we will be stopping at several points to meet the plants
A bottle of water
A camera, notebook, field guide (plants), small basket/cloth bag will all enchance your day
