Overview

Our native floral kingdom is abundant in edible and useful plants, many of which are very well known and often commonly seen as weeds. Their many uses were highly respected by our ancestors in times past, when wild plants were relied upon for food, medicine and textiles etc.

Travelling by canoe we will explore some of the more inaccessible and secret wild places to find local, seasonal plants and look at their various uses. We will identify and gather some edible and tasty varieties and learn different ways to prepare and cook them. The day will leave you with enough knowledge to sample and harvest a variety of plants in your own days out in the countryside.

NB Participants bring their own packed lunches which are supplemented by foods foraged throughout the day.
