DATES (2020) - Sat 23rd May
This foraging workshop along the River Dee on the English/Welsh border is a fabulous introduction the some of the most wonderful edible species, but also some of the most poisonous species of plant to grow in the wild in the UK. On this event we will show you how to indentify the edible stuff along with, and perhaps more importantly, learning how to avoid the poisonous plants.
The walk will take in a variety of habitat, from the edge of the river itself, through arable farmland, hedgerows and some woodland, meaning you will encounter a vast array of species at this time of year. We will be getting hands on with many species, learning the ins and outs of how to identify them, use them (or not in the case of the poisonous ones!) and about their folklore.
Our courses are limited to 12 people as this number allows for a good atmosphere and allows David to get to know what each persons knowledge base is and cater to their needs, whether you are a complete novice to foraging or slightly more experienced we can offer everyone a truly great experience.
