March 16 @ 13:30 - 16:00
Forget shop-bought pestos – this session will give you the skills to craft your own concoctions with foraged ingredients like nettle and wild garlic. It’s easy, it’s tasty, and it’s wild.
Our guide, local forager Ella Milburn (@everydayforaging), will show you how to spot the tasty herbs and greens that are hiding in plain sight all around us. We’ll go to a picturesque wild garlic spot in the woods and then have a wander to discover what else is around. You’ll learn what’s safe to eat and what’s not, and learn about how to harvest wild foods sustainably.
This is a pleasant woodland trail taking you on a winding path through the farm fields and between the trees where you can enjoy the views over the countryside and keep an eye out for wildlife. This trail becomes very muddy, especially in wetter conditions, so appropriate footwear and careful footing are required. Some paths can also become overgrown so care with navigation is needed.
Afterwards, we’ll head back uphill to an indoor location for a demonstration of how to whip up a nature-infused pesto using fresh finds from our stroll.
What to Bring:
- Comfortable walking shoes and clothing suitable for the weather
- Water bottle
- Small basket or bag for collecting foraged items
- Enthusiasm for learning, exploring, and creating!
