Foraging walk in Leith 09/09/18
Wild food has no chemicals (intentionally) used in production, no transport costs and is the slowest food of all. Come along and learn how to forage to supplement your diet, the basics of wild plan identification and which plans grow in and around the community croft. We’ll even have a bit of a picnic and do some leaf pressing – so you can take home reminders of what we discovered on the day.
Participants will meet at Leith community croft, where there’ll be short introductions before we head off on a foraging walk around the local area. Participants will be introduced to the various wild edibles growing amongst the croft’s produce and the surrounding area, including basic information for identification, nutrition and culinary uses.
The workshop will conclude with a tasting of some wild snacks, some leaf-pressing to take home and a recap about the various plants and fungi we discovered on our walk.
