FORAGING FOR WILD FOOD & BACK TO HORSE HAVEN UK TO COOK YOUR GATHERINGS

May 20 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

£70.00

Foraging for wild food & back to Horse Haven uk to cook your gatherings.

Not horse related but definitely interesting and fun and we will probably find something tasty to bring back for the horses too.

The day begins at 10.30am until 4.30pm.

Off for a leisurely ramble on the Somerset Levels to forage for wild, free food then back to Horse Haven Uk to cook up your findings under the guidance of Chris.  I am quite sure he will have some tasty recipes up his sleeve and there are cooking facilities in our workshop. Top that with some veggie sausage and there will be a fine feast for all.

This is the time of year when weeds and herbs are growing in abundance throughout the hedgerows. Most are packed with vitamins, minerals and healing properties.

You will learn to safely identify edible, tasty plants growing all around us and how to make yummy meals from them.

Why not join us for a fun, informative day out. There will be a fair bit of walking so sturdy boots, warm layers and always a good idea to pack a waterproof.

Chris Hope, aka Ipso phyto -Wild Plant Guide, is the facilitator on this workshop, he is very enthusiastic about his work and very well qualified so you will be in safe hands.

With a background and degree in Medicinal Horticulture, Chris has a thorough understanding of plant constituents and their actions. Since 2010 he has led around 200 forage walks and courses.

His main interest is in the abundance of Britain’s wild food plants, and he has been heavily involved with several wild food gatherings and preparation festivals, and in the last four years has worked with HedgeUcation C.I.C.

Chris is currently building a new website, you can follow Wild Plant Guide on facebook and twitter. A number of bite size foraging videos are available on his youtube channel ipsophyto777.
