Forage with Your Senses
Learn to find wild food using more than just sight
A half day seasonal foraging walk
Sun April 23rd, 2017
On this half day spring foraging walk, you'll learn about edible wild plants that grow freely around us, using all of your senses, then we'll make something you can eat from our harvest.
Just on the outskirts of Brighton & Hove, Stanmer Park (Stanmer from the Anglo-Saxon words ‘stan’ meaning ‘stone’ and ‘mere’ meaning ‘pond’ - so stony pond), is a local nature reserve, and has beautiful woodland walks and extensive open lands.
It’s an important species-rich habitat, where you can find an abundance of wild plants to forage for food and medicine.
On this seasonal foraging walk you'll:
• learn ways to tune in to your senses
• get to know plants using all of your senses
• meet and identify lots of wild, abundant, local plants that you can eat
After the walk, we’ll have a fire where you’ll be able to sample teas made from the wild herbal plants that we find, try a foraged spring green salad, and other tasty wild food that we gather.
This session is being led by Mike Cutting.
Mike has a wealth of plant knowledge and can also talk about bird song, signs of local animal activity, different trees, and an appreciation of the whole habitat.
