Autumn Foraging Talk, Taste & Walk
Oct 14 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Autumn Foraging Talk, Taste & Walk

Autumn is probably the most bountiful of seasons for foraging with lots of fruit and berries available ahead of the leaner winter season. We will start off indoors and discuss the health, safety and sustainability of foraging. Jim will cover many foraged foods available in the autumn. There will be demonstrations, tastings and recipes of autumn foraged foods.

Learn to identify and use many plants that grow all around us in fields, woods and hedgerows. Use these plants as food and medicine with Jim who has many years’ experience of using them. Get out into the great outdoors and see the bounty that surrounds us all. Please dress appropriately in boots and rain gear. Call us with any questions on 051 584422.
