ABOUT THE DAY
If you are looking to learn about foraging and the hedgerow treats that are available then this workshop is for you. We will look at trees, plants and fungi with fresh eyes. Join Greg Power for a full day of foraging and learning new skills in the grounds of the farm
During the workshop you will:
• Have a full and comprehensive safety brief • Learn about the edible plants that are available and how you can prepare them safely ready to eat • Learn about nature’s medicine cabinet and how it can help treat injuries • Understand the history behind the plants and trees • Learn basic animal tracking skills • Learn how to prepare fish or game ready for lunch • Learn basic knife skills and the law surrounding knives • Learn which plants and trees aid you in creating fire by friction • Understand the law and learn the lore that surrounds our countryside • Have a final forage putting your new skills to the test
Our courses are designed to stimulate the mind by way of understanding your surroundings and stir your soul through the story of each plant and tree.
All the necessary tools and materials will be provided, however if you would like to bring a foraging basket or similar item please bring it along. There are no skills required for this course; however comfortable walking boots and appropriate clothing for the weather are a must.
