Wild food

Wild Food

Wild food is about respectfully celebrating and embracing the wild, neglected and uncommon edibles that are in our landscape: From wild garlic and tender Spring greens; the heady flowers of Summer; the bounty of Autumn fruits, to the mystery of wild yeasts that leaven sourdough and lend sparkle to elderflower fizz, to the gut friendly bacteria that appear when lactofermenting. These classes and walks will show you how to fully appreciate the plants that make up our beautiful countryside.
