About the Event

It  is a common belief that you need to live deep in the countryside to  enjoy foraging, but once you start to look closer  at the small pockets of green spaces hiding in plain sight around towns and cities, you’ll  wonder why you never saw it all before!

Come along to a Wild Food Foraging Walk and explore the incredible abundance of wild edibles, as we take a walk through Valley Park in South-East Cramlington - an area of extensive woodland, meadow and wetlands.

- What to Expect -

🌱You will learn how to correctly identify wild edibles, which can include flowers, fruits, foliage and fungi.

🌱How to forage safely and within the law.

🌱How to act sustainably when out and about.

🌱How to use wild food in the kitchen, including tips on how to prepare, store and preserve them and make the most of your harvest.

🌱We'll also look at the medicinal and nutritional benefits of the wild edibles we come across.

- What to Bring -
