Join us for a day of fun on Saturday 21st February 2015. You will be learning the art of making your own blue handmade cheese using traditional methods. This hands-on workshop is hosted by Sarah & Chris Styles-Power from The Shebbear Cheese Co in Devon.

SPRING FORAGING WORKSHOP

DETAILS

Date: Saturday 2nd May 2015 Time: 10am – 4pm Price per person: £85

Booking is essential: Email query@clavelshaybarn.co.uk

There are certain things you can experience in life that change the way you view the world. A Spring Foraging walk led by friendly, local expert Greg Power is one of them. Ask any forager why they scour the wilderness for food and the answer will invariably have something to do with the pleasure of communing with nature.

You will learn to confidently identify and sustainably harvest an amazing array of common wild edible and medicinal plants around Clavelshay Farm. This would include the introduction, safety brief, foraging walk – identifying flora and fauna, then collecting food ready for lunch.

There will be a lunch cooked over an open fire. Game meat or fish will be the order of the day.

After lunch another walk and tree identification if time permits.

A kit list, nutritional/medical needs form and directions will be provided once the course is booked.
