The Wild Kitchen: Spring Greens

Head into the woods with us to learn all about seasonal foraging!

If spring foraging had a colour, it would be the deep green of nettles, mixed with the white froth of elderflowers. The focus will be on the greens, flowers and roots readily available in late-Spring in Scotland.  The farm sits at a border between upland and lowland geography, giving us an excellent mix of plants to forage.  We will gather a range of easily accessible plants that you should be able to find in your own local areas, we will focus on clear identification and both food and medicinal uses to give you a wide range of uses for your treasured finds. 

We will arrive at the farm for a hearty breakfast before we spend the morning in the woods foraging.  There will be walking, but with plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep us going as we gather ingredients for the afternoon.  Then we will head back to the covered woodshed and studio for an afternoon of eating.  We will sample a range of recipes made from the ingredients we've foraged, as well as making a few useful botanical products for the home. There will even be some botanical cocktails to try, if you are so inclined. 

You will be able to take away the plants you forage for use in your own kitchen and home apothecary, as well as an extensive recipe pack and a very full belly!!

MATERIALS:

Please bring a pair of good walking boots or wells and dress for Scotland in spring (ie probably wet and changeable). Also, please bring cloth bags or baskets for foraging on the day.
