13th July, 31st of August or 8th of September 3:30 - 7pm.
Come learn how to forage in the woods with us and enjoy a woodfired pizza made with your finds.
After meeting at the farm, we will head straight out into the woods and fields to explore seasonal Scottish wild food. Our walk starts down the hedgerow, were we will look at common hedgerow plants that make excellent additions to the kitchen. Depending on the season, that may be sloes, blackberries, cherries, yarrow, hogweed, plaintain, rosehips, and many more. We will then go into the forest to hunt for edible mushrooms. We will cover only those mushrooms that are easily identified and with no close non-edible lookalikes. While in the woods, we will talk about where to forage and the laws around foraging in Scotland.
We won't just cover food uses, on our walk, we will also cover some medicinal herbs and plants that are used for natural dyeing.
We will head back to our farm (by way of the herb garden and polytunnel) where we will use our finds to make delicious wood fired sourdough pizzas to enjoy together.
